Corey Johnson: Jupiter teen charged in fatal BallenIsles stabbing denied bond

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - The teen accused of murder and attempted murder in a Palm Beach Gardens stabbing earlier this month is now being charged as an adult.

Corey B. Johnson, 17, of Jupiter was formally charged on Thursday with three felony counts: one count of first degree murder with a deadly weapon and two counts of attempted first-degree murder with a deadly weapon.

A grand jury found there was enough evidence to charge him as an adult in the deadly stabbing of 13-year-old Jovanni Sierra on March 12.  

Johnson is also accused of attempting to murder Elaine Simon and Dane Bancroft.

A judge denied bond during a Friday morning hearing.
