Trinity Carr indicted: How did a fight over a boy escalate into three teen Delaware girls planning on beating a rival at a school bathroom, leading into her death.

Authorities have arrested there Wilmington, Delaware teenage girls in relation to the fatal assault of 16 year old Howard High school Tech sophomore student, Amy Inita Joyner-Francis.

Charged with criminal negligent homicide was Trinity Carr, 16, with third degree criminal conspiracy charges filed against Zion Snow and Chakeira Wright.

According to a statement released Monday by the state Department of Justice, authorities told of their intent to try Trinity Carr as an adult  ‘because of the severity of her offense,’.

Prosecutors will try the other teens in family court because neither have any prior offenses ‘and because they did not physically assault Amy.’

Who’s to blame? Amy Inita Joyner school girl beaten to death by gang of girls over boy

The charges come after the victim got into a fight with Trinity Carr over a boy, escalating to Joyner-Frances being jumped by a gang of other girls who slammed her head against a bathroom sink, leading to her death. 

Medical examiners ruled Amy’s death a cardiac failure stemming from a heart defect with a contributing factor of physical and emotional stress from the assault.

Told the DOJ in part: ‘In layman’s terms, the Medical Examiner determined that Amy died from a cardiac incident that she was vulnerable to because of a pre-existing heart condition, but the cardiac incident would not have occurred if she had not been assaulted.’

Prosecutors told although all three girls planned to fight Amy April 21, only Trinity Carr actually hit her.

In caught video surveillance, Trinity Carr was observed repeatedly hitting Amy in the head and torso area with ‘what appears to be a closed fist.’

If convicted, Trinity Carr could spend up to eight years behind bars. The other teens’ charges carry a maximum of a year in prison.

Communication between the three girls showed that they planned the assault in the 20 hours prior to the attack, according to court documents. The three girls followed Amy into the bathroom and then began the assault, court papers say.

During a press conference, Wilmington Mayor Dennis Williams described Amy’s death as a tragedy.

Telling: ‘From the beginning, the Wilmington Police Department and the Department of Justice worked hand-and-hand to determine the appropriate charges,’

‘This is just the first step toward providing Amy’s family and our community with closure. I ask that we keep the family and loved ones of everyone involved in our thoughts and prayers.’

Offered the deceased teen’s father, Sonny Francis via the nydailynews: I think this is a dream and I’m trying to wake up,’

‘All I know is that my daughter’s gone, and she was the love of my life. And it hurts.’

    What a idiot.

    Here is my fantasy: The black community has a one-week national town
    hall meeting to discuss the CRISIS in the black community and how to fix
    it. You rent Madison Square Garden and the Staples Center for one full
    week and take over BET for one full week. For 15 hours each day for
    seven full days you discuss your problems and confront your demons. You
    have a video link-up across the country between the two meetings and
    there are no commercials on BET, they donate the time. You discuss
    things like WorldStar and each and every day you actually play 10
    WorldStar or YouTube clips of the insane brutal hyper-violence you see
    in the black community. Every day 10 clips are played and discussed and
    analyzed. Faces are not blurred out, this is all public domain stuff.
    You confront your demons by looking at yourselves in these horrible
    clips. You shame yourselves and people speak openly about their shame.
    You talk about the thugs and the ratchets and in no uncertain terms
    state that it is unacceptable. More government programs and more
    ‘basketball courts’ for after-school play is NOT the solution. The
    solution has to come from within, from the SELF. The black community
    has to somehow fix itself.

    Sometimes I think that you need a ‘black Bobby Kennedy’ but ultimately
    that is a cop-out. All black people have to create and reinforce a
    collective peer pressure for normal civil behaviour, abhorrence of
    violence, respect and promotion of education. It even includes speaking
    English properly.

    So that’s my fantasy: The black community collectively pulls itself up
    by its own bootstraps and RESTORES NORMALCY to the community. If this
    ongoing CRISIS in the black community was resolved then this young black
    girl would never have been murdered, it would have simply been
    unthinkable.

    You are a trash talker and I would lovr to challenge you to a fight any day of the week.

  • Charles

    If you read my statement I said white peoole are the most violent people on this earth. Have a good day and try not to call people names based on what they didn’t say!

  • Claudia Alexander

    Exactly what point are you trying to validate because as of now your just going about nonsense son! You say and I quote “im unstable in my thinking” however you have the audacity to say that blacks are the most violent people on earth? Really? So Out of all the middle eastern people who are planting bombs and committing genocide, you believe black people are the most violent on earth.. I do agree that black on black crime rate is high and It does need to come to an end. But than again you’re the idiotic one and revise your argument because You Sir are a complete fool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #ignorantcunt

  • Charles

    If you are an example on how well white kids are raised I would not trust you to raise any kid black or white. You are unstable in your thinking. Read your history about how many black people have been killed by your race. You guys are the most violent people on this earth. Your education is leading you to comments like you have just made. Ignorance!!!

  • Charles

    Penelop like I thought this person Tigger is just like one of those girls watching the whole beating and did nothing about it. Listen to how they respond when you are defending Amy. Some people don’t understand until they get shot. I love Amy and I don’t know her, but this girl with all this hate she displayed can get it back. I personally think she didn’t like Amy because she was light skinned. This is why folk get shot. I dont think I could let it go. Somebody would have to pay and I wouldn’t wait for law enforcement to help. Look at what they are doing only a year for 2 of the girls and 8 years for Trinity. I think someone in her family would come up MIA.

  • Charles

    Before you write something think about how it sounds otherwise you are just as bad as someone watching the whole incident and not doing anything about it. All the girls involved should be in jail as we speak charged with murder.

  • Charles

    You are so right. This helion needs to do life for a life. 8 years is a smack in the face. Now if someone retaliates killing one of her family members they will through the book at them.

  • Leslie Wendle Wiebe

    Yea-you’re where you are cuz you worked your ass, right? Nobody mentions that aspect.

  • Leslie Wendle Wiebe

    Fuck the “black lives matter” bullshit. Why is it race-centric? Do not ALL lives matter?

  • Leslie Wendle Wiebe

    These girls have totally effete up value systems. That much hate against someone over a boy? And at 16 years old? Tame your hormones, idiots, and put your energies in your grades.

  • crystal221

    Wow, you are incredibly ignorant. There are plenty of black people who don’t prostitute, sell crack and gangbang and black kids who go to school and actually accomplish things with their lives. Then there are plenty of whites who are the opposite.

    I’m not angry because I’m smiling every time I check on my 401K. I smile every time I get that fat bonus. I smile every time I travel first class. I smile every time I pull out my fidelity card. I smile ever time I make fools like you look like liars. I smile every time i’m sitting at a hockey game enjoying the view from a sky box with top executives from my company. I smile ever time I take a fat vacation. Trust me there are a lot of us. That’s why the jobs are going overseas. White people don’t even want you. LOL.

  • Daniel Adams

    Rich black guys? LOL like who? Commercials of blacks trying to look educated that is why tv is not the real world. My job is great unlike yours I love my white privilege it will never change keep being black and angry. You blacks keep waiting for whites to die off that is your only hope to succeed. Whites are not going anywhere there are 200 million of us you will be waiting for a long time. We are still having kids and we at least take care of ours unlike you blacks. You blacks will always be at the bottom no matter how many whites are around because you are stupid and lazy and uneducated.

  • TIGGER

    Like I thought, a troll.

  • Penelope Alexander

    Using the term “some jail time” doesn’t sound like serious punishment to me. Maybe you should pick your words more carefully if you want to be understood. Your rude comment to me rules you out as anyone with an honest, constructive comment. You are just looking for a fight and I certainly don’t need your attention.

  • Lene

    That’s changing because more beautiful white woman are having babies by rich black guys. YEAH!!!! That’s why we are seeing more biracial kids. While the baby boomers die off. I love it when I go to work and see their beautiful brown babies in the office. If you had a good job you would have known this.

  • Daniel Adams

    Poor I am not by any means. Nobody is jealous of blacks believe me. I love my white privilege. LOL

  • Lene

    It’s always the poor whites that hating on the poor blacks. Jealous is a disease that I can’t help you with. The only cure is going back to school. The rich always got people like you thinking the poor blacks is holding you back when it is really about the rich getting richer. While they got you hating on the blacks they are getting richer and you are getting poorer as they making that big deposit in their checking account. That’s how politics go and the uneducated feed into this BS, because they don’t read. You should be mad at that CEO who is making millions and laying people like you off of work. I’m not going to give you any more of my time.

  • Daniel Adams

    Who cares about that blacks are the lowest in the country by far. We all know they don’t care about education

  • Daniel Adams

    Nice lame comeback. You have your data go for it see for yourself. Blacks kids only graduate at about 60 percent lowest of any group and you know it

  • Lene

    Please U.S. student as a whole are so behind I’m wouldn’t brag.

  • LolaDeadly

    Right. You sure you’re not included in the lowest education rate stats you made up?

  • Daniel Adams

    I have been seeing it for years obviously you haven’t. Go ahead and google it you will see. Blacks are the lowest every year. City-data.com every school in the country pick one and you will see. Don’t try to fool yourself.

  • Daniel Adams

    Blacks always talking about the past . We are talking about now not 50 years ago. Blacks didn’t start drivebys because of gangsters always an excuse for their behavior never a solution. And just because somebody does something doesn’t mean you have to do it also

  • LolaDeadly

    hasn’t added one source of data yet…I’ll wait…

  • Daniel Adams

    Don’t even talk about schooling . Blacks by far have the lowest graduation rates in the country even behind Hispanics which is sad because half of them cant even speak English.

  • Lene

    The Mobsters were the most violent. Who you think started the driveby shootings. Read your history book Daniel.

    Please they need to go to school and work just like you tell the blacks.

  • LolaDeadly

    You should take your own advice. If you seriously believe the bullshit you just wrote as fact, do humanity a favor and take a nap on some train tracks.

  • Daniel Adams

    Why don’t you talk about Americas poor black towns. Pick one you have many to choose from. Gang violence, drugs. prostitution. You cant compete

  • Daniel Adams

    Not per capita as usual the black person forgets percentages. Whites deserve it more than anybody we pay 80 percent of the federal taxes in this country if anybody deserves them it is whites.

  • Daniel Adams

    Live in the ghetto as usual but we are supposed to ease up on minority arrest says Loretta Lynch. What an administration cannot wait for her and Obozo to be gone in 7 months. What a mess they have created and will leave behind.

  • Claudia Alexander

    Im sorry but #blacklivesmatter has showed up to trump events, Bernie Sanders Speeches ,a dn other things opposing Police Brutality. The names suggest that black lives matter as a result of them feeling that they are what… Second Class citizens, Not treated fairly etc. So that organization has moved more than police brutality and has created a more preominent meaning suggesting That black people should not be discriminated upon HOWEVER they do it amongst themselves so this is why nobody pays attention to them and their radical ideas

  • Claudia Alexander

    Would you just shut the fuck up if you don’t know what the fuck to comment? I don’t see white kids killing each other everyday than ironically yell “White lives matter”. At least white kids go to school and actually accomplish things with their lives whereas blacks only prostitute, sell crack, and gangbang. And wtf does Abraham Lincoln have to do with this… Oh wait he risked his own presidency and life to make a better life for afrifrican americans and so did mlk but how have they thanked him. Oh yes, by killing each other over boys in bathroom stalls.

  • Joe J

    Makes no sense then. So certain black lives matter?

  • LolaDeadly

    What’s your cure for white kids that go on mass shooting rampages at their schools? Abraham Lincoln didn’t dream about people marrying their cousin, launching fireworks off their head, and working for Arby’s either.

    I wish they would take this picture down. If this was my child I would not want this to be the last picture I see of my child alive.

  • TIGGER

    My POINT was that they need to be punished, not get a slap on the hand and do a couple years, They need to do some serious time. Before you read what you want into something, read it again. Or are you just another troll that enjoys getting attention because it is the only way you can get any?
