Michigan teen charged with murder in stabbing of classmate

WARREN, Mich. (AP) — A 17-year-old Detroit-area girl has been charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of a classmate during a fight that authorities say was over a male student.

Tanaya Lewis was arraigned Friday in Warren District Court on a first-degree murder charge, two days after police say 16-year-old Danyna (Dan-YON’-uh) Gibson was stabbed twice in the upper chest with a steak knife in Fitzgerald High School. She was pronounced dead at a hospital about an hour later.

Lewis was denied bond during the hearing in which she appeared via video.

An autopsy found Gibson died of multiple stab wounds and her death was ruled a homicide.
