THE teenagers charged in connection with the murder of a 12th grade Doris Johnson Senior High School student could stand trial in Supreme Court as early as November, The Tribune understands.

The defendants, aged 18, 15 and 16, appeared before Justice Bernard Turner on Friday afternoon for a fixture hearing in the judge's chamber concerning the December 9 stabbing death of Adonai Wilson.

It was a follow-up hearing to their formal arraignment on March 18, at which they pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder.

The trio could stand trial on November 28 but the date is subject to change pending the outcome of another status hearing set for May 3.

According to initial reports, Wilson, a 16-year-old student, was stabbed multiple times during an argument with several other school students shortly after school was dismissed early because of exams. He died in hospital a short time later.

The murder took place around 2pm on Prince Charles Drive and a graphic cell phone video of the incident was spread on social media.

All three teens are currently on remand at the Department of Correctional Services.

They have retained attorneys Murrio Ducille, Ian Cargill and Roberto Reckley to defend them.
