Ryan Carter

10-year-old boy charged with murder

SAN DIEGO - Prosecutors filed murder charges Wednesday against a 10-year-old boy accused of fatally stabbing his 12-year-old friend in an East County neighborhood.

A detention hearing for the boy is planned for Thursday morning in Juvenile Court.

Ryan Carter, 12, was stabbed in the chest about 1:15 p.m. Monday in the driveway of the younger boy's home in the 12500 block of Royal Road in the unincorporated Winter Gardens area, near El Cajon, according to sheriff's officials.

Paramedics took Carter to Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, where he died about 2:30 p.m., Lt. Larry Nesbit said. The alleged killer's name was withheld due to being a juvenile.
