YORK COUNTY, SC (WBTV) -

A 12-year-old York County boy admitted in court Tuesday to stabbing another child in the back.

The incident took place on December 23, in a wooded area of the county.

Officials said an altercation took place between the boy, who was eleven-years-old at the time, and the victim, who was 15-years-old. The eleven-year-old went home, then came back to the scene and stabbed the teen.

The suspect, whose name has not been released due to his age, was charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

In court, he was ordered to be evaluated for 45 days, at the end of which he is scheduled to be back in court to be sentenced.

Officials say the sentence could be anything from probation to jail until he is 21.
