Prosecutors want to try teen as adult in Longmont stabbing

Posted: Updated:
BOULDER (AP) -

Prosecutors want to try a 15-year-old accused in the stabbing death of a 19-year-old woman in northern Colorado as an adult.
  
The teen was charged with first-degree murder in juvenile court in Boulder Wednesday but prosecutors requested that his case be moved to district court. Because he is under 16, a judge will have to decide whether to allow that.
  
Prosecutors allege the teen developed a "death list" that included the sister of his victim.
  
He is accused of fatally stabbing Makayla Grote Saturday night in Longmont and then pursuing her sister, who locked herself in a room.
  
Prosecutors say police found him about a mile from the home of another person on the list.
  
He also allegedly assaulted his grandfather and threatened his mother with a knife the day before the stabbing.
