First-degree murder charge for teen

Toronto boy now quadriplegic, reports say

by

A 15-year-old boy has been charged with first-degree murder after the van he was at the wheel of crushed a police officer. York Regional Police Constable Garrett Styles was dragged by the minivan for about 300 metres before the van rolled on top of him. The van had snagged Styles after he had reached inside the vehicle for the keys when he discovered the van didn’t belong to any of the occupants inside during a traffic stop. The teen is still in hospital with serious injuries. Reports say the boy is now a quadriplegic. He is scheduled to appear in court July 7.
