Correction: Metro Stabbing story

Wednesday - 12/5/2012, 2:56pm  ET

WASHINGTON - In a story Dec. 4 about a group of teenagers charged in connection with a fatal stabbing at Metro station, The Associated Press reported erroneously the number of teenagers that a judge was deciding whether to hold pending trial. The judge was deciding whether to hold four of the teens, not all nine charged.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Judge deciding on holding teens in Metro stabbing

Judge deciding whether to hold teens accused in Metro station stabbing death

A judge in Washington is deciding whether to hold four teens charged in connection with a fatal stabbing at a Metro station.

The hearing was scheduled to continue Tuesday in D.C. Superior Court before Judge Ronna L. Beck. The judge is deciding whether the teens should be released while awaiting trial.

A police detective, meanwhile, testified Monday that investigators are seeking at least three more people. The detective said the three can be seen in security camera videos.

Nine suspects were arrested following the Nov. 17 death of 18-year-old Olijawon Griffin of Olney. Police say Griffin was robbed of an iPhone and jacket while trying to buy marijuana and later confronted the teens at the Metro station. Seventeen- year-old Chavez Myers has been charged as an adult with second degree murder.
