As reported by DailyMail:
Three high school girls in Delaware are facing criminal charges over the fatal beating of a classmate inside a school bathroom last month, authorities said on Monday.
Amy Inita Joyner-Francis (left and right), 16, died after being attacked by Trinity Carr, Zion Snow and Chakeira Wright, all 16, in the women’s bathroom at Howard High School of Technology in Wilmington, Delaware, Thursday morning
Amy Joyner-Francis, a 16-year-old sophomore at Howard High School of Technology in Wilmington, Delaware, died following an early-morning fight on April 22.
Trinity Carr (pictured), 16, could be tried as an adult for criminally negligent homicide after hitting classmate 16-year-old Amy Joyner-Francis in their high school’s bathroom
The state Department of Justice said it had charged Trinity Carr, 16, with criminally negligent homicide and would seek to have her tried as an adult. She faces up to eight years in prison.

Carr was the only girl to strike Amy, though all three girls planned the confrontation, according to the department.
The other two girls, Zion Snow and Chakeira Wright, have been charged with criminal conspiracy, which carries up to one year in prison. They will be tried as juveniles.
An autopsy concluded that Joyner-Francis died from a ‘cardiac incident’ that stemmed from a pre-existing heart condition but was brought on by the stress of the attack, according to the department.
‘The cardiac incident would not have occurred if she had not been assaulted,’ the Department of Justice said in a statement.
The fight broke out around 8.15am on April 22 before classes at Howard High School of Technology.
Students who witnessed the deadly scuffle said that Joyner and another girl started fighting in one of the women’s bathrooms over a boy, when a gang of other girls jumped the victim.
At one point, someone slammed her head against a sink, according to witnesses who spoke with 6ABC.
Joyner-Francis was flown to A.I. DuPont Children’s Hospital in critical condition, where she was later pronounced dead. The cause of death has not been confirmed.
Authorities questioned Carr, Snow and Wright over the deadly brawl – all of whom have now been suspended from school.
‘Now they know they’re in very serious trouble and could spend a substantial amount of time in prison,’ Mayor Dennis Williams told CBS News.

May Amy rest in peace, and may God continue to provide justice for her, and make those who were all involved in the killing of Amy, and watching and recording her being jumped and killed without remorse, suffer the consequences for their actions.
