Teens accused of bullying girl to death
FLORIDA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Two Florida teens have been arrested, accused of bullying a 12-year-old girl to death.
Rebecca Sedwick killed herself last month after her mother says she was relentlessly tormented.
Police say her classmates,14-year-old Guadalupe Shaw and 12-year-old Katelyn Roman, were picking on Rebecca over a boy they dated.
Police say the girls bullied her at school and on Facebook until she just couldn't take it anymore.
The Florida teen jumped to her death from a tower at an abandoned concrete factory.
The two girls were booked and released. They are expected to face a judge, but police say both have clean records so it is unlikely they will face any jail time.
