ST. FRANCISVILLE, LA (WAFB) - A 16-year-old accused of stabbing an 8-year-old boy to death last week was indicted for first-degree murder by a grand jury Thursday.

Trevor Reese will not face the possibility of the death penalty because of his age.

Reese was not in court for the hearing.

If convicted, he will receive an automatic life sentence.

His arraignment is scheduled for June 24.
