I noticed that the story mentioned they were 'in a physical altercation'. Is it possible that the relationship was abusive or that he attacked her and she was trying to defend herself?

no go find the "parents" and throw them in with her. if you're not going to raise your droppings to be decent people, you should be help accountable for their behavior.

Man these young teens need to really learn how to curve their frustrations and anger...so sad to see her life taking away cause she couldn't control her anger...and the result this young man losing his life over something i'm sure was so insignificant. Pray for both of the families.
