WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Testimony is set to resume in the trial of three girls charged in a school bathroom fight that left a 16-year-old Wilmington girl dead.

Attorneys are expected to finish presenting evidence Monday in the trial involving the death of Amy Joyner-Francis after a fight last April at Howard High School of Technology.

An autopsy found that Joyner-Francis, who had a heart condition, died of sudden cardiac death, aggravated by physical and emotional stress from the fight.

All three girls, including a 17-year-old charged with criminally negligent homicide, are being tried as juveniles. If adjudicated delinquent, the 17-year-old would be subject to supervision until age 19.

The two other girls are charged with conspiracy for allegedly helping plan the fight.



The Associated Press is not naming them because they are juveniles.
