The 16-year-old North Carolina high school student who allegedly shot and killed his classmate on Monday is being held without bond.
Jatwan Craig Cuffie has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder in the death of 16-year-old Bobby McKeithen.
Cuffie allegedly shot McKeithen in a crowded hallway at Butler High School in Matthews just before classes started on Monday morning.
The high school freshman appeared in Mecklenburg County District Court on Tuesday afternoon, wearing shackles at the waist.
Cuffie’s face showed virtually no emotion as he was addressed by Judge David Strickland.
Public Defender Joel Adelman told Strickland that Cuffie poses no threat to the community and had no prior convictions. He asked that bond be set to $10,000.
