Amy Joyner Francis’ death was mourned by many who didn’t even know the Delaware high school student. Francis, 16, died after a school bathroom fight with a group of girls allegedly over a boy. Although she died over two weeks ago, no charges had yet been filed against the girls involved in the fight. Now, three girls will face charges in her death.

People.com reports: 

In a statement to PEOPLE, the Delaware Department of Justice released the cause of the teen’s death.

The autopsy did not detect any internal injuries or significant blunt force injuries,” the statement reads. “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.

Philly.com reports: 

Trinity Carr, 16, was charged with criminally negligent homicide, which is punishable by a maximum of eight years in prison. Prosecutors will request that she be tried as an adult.

 Zion Snow, 16, and Chakeira Wright, also 16, were charged as juveniles with third-degree criminal conspiracy. They face a maximum one year in prison.

“The individuals responsible for Amy Joyner-Francis’s death are minors, but they must be held accountable for their actions,” the Delaware Department of Justice said in a statement.
