14-year-old boy accused of robbery, assault and murder

At his arraignment in Salem, Massachusetts, Philip Chism, a 14-year-old student at Danvers High School, pleaded not guilty to charges of armed robbery, aggravated rape and murder.

Chism allegedly followed his female teacher, Coleen Ritzer into a school bathroom, took her cell phone, money and credit cards, and brutally assaulted her. Then he allegedly dumped her body in a wooded area behind the school.

Chism allegedly became upset when Ritzer mentioned Tennessee. He had recently moved from there due to his parents’ “stressful” divorce.
