MONTROSE, Colo.” A second 14-year-old boy arrested in the knife attack on a student at Montrose High School will remain in custody at a youth center until prosecutors decide what charges he will face.

The boy appeared in a Montrose courtroom Thursday in connection with the attack on 17-year-old Mallory Haulman, whose throat was cut as she entered the school Nov. 11.

Prosecutor Jerry Montgomery told the court the case was complex and asked a district judge for additional time to investigate the incident.

The teen is being held at Grand Mesa Youth Services Center in Grand Junction. He is due back in court Dec. 22.

Another boy, 14-year-old Michael Yates, has been charged as an adult with attempted first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree assault.
