FREDERICK, Md. (WDVM) — A Frederick County Circuit Court charged a 15-year old juvenile with the death of John Weed.

“In the juvenile system, this is the best we can do for the family. It’s also what is right at this time for the offender given his status as a juvenile. Nothing will bring back their loved one, but I hope that they can begin to heal a little more now that this part is behind them.”State’s Attorney Charlie Smith
According to officials, a second suspect was involved, the 16-year-old charged as a juvenile with two counts of 2nd Degree Assault is pending trial.
