FORT MYERS, Fla.- Fort Myers, Fla- Two children from Fort Myers are ordered to stay in juvenile detention center after threatening to kill a classmate.
Both suspects are 10 years-old and so is the victim.
All three children go to Rayma C. Page Elementary School in Fort Myers.
WINK News is not identifying any of the children involved because of their ages.
According to police reports, the victim was making racial remarks to one of the two suspects.
There was an ongoing feud for the past few weeks and on Wednesday it got out of control.
The two suspects allegedly brought steak knives to the school, threatened to stab the classmate and then set him on fire.
Investigators found two knives and lighters in one of the suspect's bags.
In court Thursday morning, a Lee County Judge ordered the two suspects to stay in the juvenile detention center for 21 days.
They must also have no contact with each other and the victim.
The news caused one of the suspect's family members to faint.
She was taken out of the courtroom by the paramedics.
The two suspects will be in court again on May 3.
They are charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and possession of a weapon on school property.
