HAMILTON — Police in Hamilton are expected to provide more information this afternoon on the stabbing death of a teenager outside a high school in the city's east end.

Investigators are scheduled to hold a news conference on the alleged homicide at 3 p.m.

They've already laid first-degree murder charges against an 18-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy, both of whom appeared in court today.

A third person was initially arrested but later released without conditions.

Investigators have said the victim was stabbed outside Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School just after 1 p.m. Monday, while his mother looked on.

Police say the victim's name won't be released at this time, and the younger accused cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
