State will not pursue death penalty for Johnson

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- The state of Florida will not pursue the death penalty for Corey Johnson, the teenager accused in a deadly stabbing inside the BallenIsles community in Palm Beach Gardens.

In March, the 17-year-old told investigators his religious beliefs led him to stab a boy to death and injure another boy and his mother.

Corey Johnson faces murder and attempted murder charges.
