CANTON — A 13-year-old suspect has been charged with aggravated murder in the fatal shooting of 14-year-old Sylvia McGee.

The Canton teen was charged Tuesday, said Michelle Cordova, who heads the juvenile division of the Stark County Prosecutors Office. The Beacon Journal does not name juveniles charged in crimes unless they are charged as adults.

He is scheduled to appear in Stark County Family Court Wednesday morning on the aggravated murder charge as well as a previously filed juvenile charge of obstructing justice. He is the same boy charged earlier with lying to authorities during their investigation.

Cordova described him as an “acquaintance” of the victim. “They’ve known each other for quite some time,” Cordova said.
