Kaylee Gain attack suspect won’t be tried as adult after evidence… – EVOL

The 15-year-old girl accused of viciously beating classmate Kaylee Gain into a coma will not be charged as an adult, a St. Louis judge ruled on Wednesday.

The case will remain in juvenile court after the judge reviewed the unnamed suspect’s school history and met with the girl and her family several times since the brutal March fight outside Hazelwood East High School.

Disturbing video showed her attacker get on top of the teen and repeatedly bash her head into the pavement.

She awoke from a coma several days later, but still has a long road to recovery, her family has said.

The teen’s defense attorney, Greg Smith, said in court Wednesday that Gain was previously suspended from school for a fight and struck the 15-year-old first.

Gain’s parents were present in the courtroom.
