ST. GEORGE'S, Grenada (AP) — Prosecutors say a 13-year-old girl has been charged in the killing of a fellow student at a high school in the eastern Caribbean island of Grenada.

A judge on Friday ordered the minor to remain in prison until a court hearing scheduled for November.
The teen is the second student to be charged with murder in the past 10 months in Grenada. A 16-year-old female student was accused of killing her sister a couple of months ago for motives that remain unclear.
