Teen Accused of Killing Classmate Was ‘Smiling and Laughing’ During Attack

A Michigan teen accused of fatally stabbing a classmate was “smiling and laughing” during the attack, according to reports.

Students watched in horror as Tanaya Lewis, 17, killed Danyna Gibson, 16, with a kitchen knife in a classroom Wednesday at Fitzgerald High School in Warren, Mich., Fox 2 Detroit reported. “Witnesses said the defendant was smiling and laughing as she was chasing the victim,” Detective Donald Seidel of the Warren Police Department told a judge on Friday.

One stab penetrated Danyna’s heart, the station reported. Police said there was animosity between the two straight-A students over a boy. Lewis is being held without bail on a capital murder charge.
