WARREN, Mich. (AP) - A 17-year-old girl accused of fatally stabbing a classmate at their Detroit-area school in an alleged dispute over a boy has been bound over for trial.

Tanaya Lewis is charged with first-degree premeditated murder in the death of 16-year-old Danyna Gibson in a classroom at Warren Fitzgerald High School on Sept. 12.

Investigators say the attack occurred in front of a teacher and about 20 students, and that Lewis was laughing as she chased Gibson and stabbed her in the chest and back.

Judge Matthew Sabaugh ordered Lewis held in jail without bond. She’s due to be formally arraigned March 18.

The Detroit News reports Lewis, dressed in jail garb, showed little emotion during a brief hearing Friday.

She was found competent to stand trial in December.
