PRICE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. (WMAR) - A 12-year-old accused of beating his 2-year-old foster sister to death will spend the time leading up to his trial in prison.
A judge ruled today that the boy accused in the death of Aniyah Batchelor who has been held at the Cheltenham Youth Facility since the death will remain there until trial. The preteen is still only being charged as a juvenile because by Maryland law, suspects must be at least 14 to be charged as an adult.
Prince George's County Police say Aniyah was killed July 3, and allege that the boy hit her six times, causing massive internal injuries.
A judge agreed with prosecutors that the boy must be considered a danger.
