Fights, tears mark court appearance in teen’s fatal stabbing

ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A suspect in the stabbing death of a 16-year-old Connecticut boy broke down during court appearance and a brawl broke out outside the courtroom.

Eighteen-year-old Shyhiem Adams is charged with manslaughter in the death of Justin Brady. Adams’ attorney says he was bullied at the high school both teens went to.

Brady was found stabbed in the front yard of a home in town Monday morning.

Court documents show the teens were involved in a dispute and met up to fight.

Adams dropped to the floor in tears during his court appearance Tuesday.

There were several outbursts from teens attending the arraignment and fights erupted outside after the judge ordered the courtroom cleared.

Adams’ case was transferred to Hartford for arraignment Sept. 24. He is being held in lieu of $750,000 bond.
