RCMP say a student accused of a deadly attack at an Edmonton-area school has been charged with first-degree murder.
Dylan Thomas Pountney, who is 19, was to appear in court in Edmonton this morning.
He remains in custody.
Police have said a 17-year-old female student was violently assaulted yesterday morning in a classroom at Christ the King School in Leduc, just south of Edmonton.
Mounties said the two students knew each other, but police did not comment on a possible motive.
The city’s mayor has said the girl was stabbed and airlifted to an Edmonton hospital, where she died.
