A Lititz teenager is headed to trial for allegedly stabbing a 15-year-old girl last month at a Manheim Township park.
Cameron Andrews, 16, waived a preliminary hearing Monday afternoon. In turn, District Judge David Miller ordered Andrews be tried on felony counts of attempted homicide (murder of the first degree) and aggravated assault.
Assistant District Attorney Christine Wilson, who is prosecuting the case, said no agreements were made in exchange for waiver of the hearing.
Manheim Township police charged Andrews, then a Manheim Township High School senior, with stabbing the girl – also a student – several times on the front and back of her body in Manheim Township Community Park in Neffsville.
The girl, after surgery and treatment at an area hospital, is recovering from her injuries, Wilson said Monday.
By waiving the preliminary hearing, Andrews doesn’t admit guilt, but concedes there is enough evidence to support charges.
He is at Lancaster County Prison without bail. He is presumed innocent.
