Teen Suspect Charged in Stabbing Death of Girl, 17

- PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A suspect has been charged in the stabbing death of another teenager during an early morning brawl in a drugstore parking lot in north Philadelphia last month.

Police said 18-year-old Keyarra Frisby was charged with murder and related offenses in the July 5 death of 17-year-old Anita Cotton, who died shortly after she was stabbed during the July 5 melee in the Hunting Park neighborhood.

Police told the Philadelphia Daily News that two groups of girls got into a fight on South Street following the Fourth of July fireworks at Penn's Landing. Officers broke up the fight, but it started up again as the teenagers got off the transit line at the Hunting Park station.

Defense attorney Joseph Schultz declined comment Saturday, saying he hadn't yet spoken to his client.
