A school principal was stabbed to death Aug. 10 at a Seventh-day Adventist school in Memphis, Tenn.
Memphis police say Suzette York, 49, was found dead inside a classroom that morning at Memphis Junior Academy just three days into the new school year.
Eduardo Marmolejo, 16, has been arrested and is being charged with first-degree murder. He was the school’s first and only 11th grade student.
Prosecutors want to try the teen as an adult.
The teen is being held without bond and was ordered by the court to undergo a mental evaluation.
Memphis Junior Academy had started classes Aug. 8. Classes have been suspended for the rest of the week.
According to police, Marmolejo said he planned on killing her since May 2011, when he found out he would be returning to Memphis Junior Academy.
Marmolejo said he decided to kill York that Wednesday because he knew he would be alone with her, according to police.
According to CNN, Marmolejo held a grudge because he had been switched out of a class the he liked during the previous school year.
According to the Commercial Appeal, the school is starting a memorial fund to finish a media center York wanted to build at the school.
An candlelight vigil will be at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 12 at the school, according to the MJA website.
York's funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. Aug. 15 at the Memphis First Seventh-day Adventist Church.
