Police Submit Results of Probe Into Deadly High School Brawl to State

Results of a Wilmington police investigation into a high school restroom fight that left a 16-year-old girl dead have been turned over to state prosecutors, who will decide whether criminal charges should be filed.

A spokeswoman for Mayor Dennis Williams confirmed that findings of the police investigation into the death of Amy Joyner-Francis were submitted to the attorney general's office Thursday.

A spokesman for Attorney General Matt Denn thanked Wilmington detectives for their work and said prosecutors would make a prompt charging determination in the case.

Joyner-Francis died April 21 after a fight in a restroom at Howard High School of Technology that involved several female students.

Three students were suspended after the incident.
