West High Student Admits Cutting Classmate’s Throat
Listen to the Story
A West High School student admitted Wednesday morning to stabbing a classmate two weeks after school began.
Marcos Solis, III, 14, told a Franklin County Juvenile Magistrate he cut Tyquan Green-Tuckerâ€™s throat as they left a school assembly for 9th graders.
Solis pleaded guilty to one count of felonious assault and one count of having a dangerous weapon in a school zone.
Green-Tucker, 14, survived the attack.
The two boys live on the same street. And Franklin County Prosecutor Ron Oâ€™Brien said each family has claimed their child was a victim of bullying.
“Thereâ€™s nothing that could have happened previously that could have justify someone taking a knife and slitting someoneâ€™s throat from behind,” O’Brien said.
Oâ€™Brien expects Solis to be sent to a Department of Youth Services juvenile facility when heâ€™s sentenced next month. Oâ€™Brien said the longest the teen could be there is seven years.
Solisâ€™ case was not heard in adult court because of his age and his lack of prior record.
