14-year-old boy stabs girl to death because of dispute on Snapchat
A 14-year-old boy has fatally stabbed a 17-year-old girl after a heated exchange on social media. The girl wanted to defend her sister who was bullied on Snapchat. She called at the boy s home and hit him, but he stabbed her in the chest in return. The girl died of her injuries.
The 14-year-old boy set up the group on Snapchat, where his teenage peers began criticising a girl. The girl s sister, 17-year-old Marjorie, grew fed up with the exchanges, went to the apartment of the boy s father and hit the teenager. He then returned to the apartment, fetched a kitchen knife, and stabbed her in the chest.
Marjorie was so severely injured that she died after the attack.

The boy was arrested soon afterwards at his mother s apartment. He confessed to the crime, but his lawyer said he never intended to cause a fatal injury.
According to the victim s older sister, Marjorie was not a delinquent type, she merely wanted to resolve an issue concerning her young sister. Marjorie s mother said her daughter was a good student who was to graduate soon. She said her daughter
died for no reason.
A procession is being organised for next weekend in memory of the girl.
