Almost a year since Amy Joyner-Francis was viciously beaten in the Howard High School of Technology bathroom and died as a result of those injuries, the verdict was delivered this morning against her assaulters. Trinity Carr was found guilty of both third-degree criminally negligent homicide and criminal conspiracy. Zion Snow also got the third-degree criminal conspiracy verdict. Chakeira Wright was found not guilty because of a lack of substantial evidence suggesting she was involved in the conspiracy to attack Joyner-Francis. It was also revealed she attempted to pull Carr off Amy during the assault.
Delaware Family Court Judge Robert Coonin read the verdict this morning. I can’t say I like this verdict. I never liked the official “cause of death” and found it to serve the girls who killed Amy more than the cause of justice. None of this will bring Amy back.
