Three of the nine teens accused of bullying tragic Irish teenager Phoebe Prince will be arraigned Tuesday.
Sean Mulveyhill, 17, Kayla Narey, 17, and Austin Renaud, 18, will appear in Hampshire Superior Court in Northampton at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
District Attorney Elizabeth Scheibel says the teens were a part of a “nearly three month campaign of verbally assaultive behavior and threats of physical harm” toward 15-year-old Phoebe at the South Hadley high school.
Mulveyhill is charged with statutory rape, violation of civil rights resulting in bodily injury, criminal harassment and disturbance of a school assembly.
Narey is charged with one count of violation of civil rights resulting with bodily injury, criminal harassment and disturbance of a school assembly.
Renaud is charged with one count of statutory rape.
The other named South Hadley students Ashley Longe, 16, Flannery Mullins, 16, and Sharon Chanon Velazquez, 16, will appear in the juvenile court as they are being charged as youthful offenders.
The remaining three teens can not be named because of their ages although one of them faces a charge of assault by means of a dangerous weapon after she allegedly threw a bottle at Prince as she walked home on Jan. 14.
Prince’s sister made the hearbreaking discovery of her sister's body when she found her hanged in a hallway leading to their apartment on Jan. 14.
