Bullies charged with death
HADLEY, Massachusetts – Prosecutors say they will call up to 50 witnesses in their case against three girls accused of bullying a classmate so relentlessly that she committed suicide.
Ashley Longe, Sharon Chanon Velazquez and Flannery Mullins appeared with their attorneys yesterday in Franklin-Hampshire Juvenile Court. Their cases are expected to go to trial in early 2011.
The three are among a group of six teenagers charged earlier this year with bullying a 15-year-old South Hadley High School freshman who hanged herself in January. (AP)
