UPDATE: 15-year-old Wausau youth charged for stabbing death of 13-year-old Wausau boySubmitted: 03/02/2015
WAUSAU - A 15-year-old Wausau youth was charged with first degree reckless homicide in Marathon County Court on Monday for the stabbing death of 13-year-old Isaiah Powell of Wausau.

The youth's bond was set at $1,000,000.

-----------------
The Wausau Police Department released the name of the teenager who was killed Friday evening.

Thirteen-year-old Isaiah Powell was stabbed during a fight in Wausau.

Powell attended Horace Mann Middle School in Wausau.


------------------

A 13-year-old boy has died after he was stabbed during a fight in Wausau that may have been prompted by a dispute on social media.

Wausau police say the stabbing happened Friday after several Wausau high school and middle school students who claim to be gang members had been arguing on Facebook during the day. The Facebook messages indicated that several of the students planned on fighting.

At about 5:30 p.m., six or seven juveniles drove to a house on the 900 block of Jefferson Street. One person fired a BB gun at juveniles who were on the porch.

Both groups began fighting in the street and the teen was stabbed twice in the back. A friend drove him to a hospital, where he died.

A 15-year-old is in custody.
