Police charge 14-year-old with schoolboy's murder

Written by: Staff

LONDON, Mar 5 (Reuters) Police charged a 14-year-old boy with the murder of Joe Geeling, an 11-year-old schoolboy whose body was found in a park in Bury, Greater Manchester, earlier this week.

''A 14-year-old boy from Bury has tonight ... been charged with murder ...,'' police said in a statement, adding that the boy would appear before magistrates tomorrow.

Geeling's body was found in a gully in the park on Thursday, the day after he was last seen alive as he walked home from school.

Earlier yesterday, his headmaster Eddie Robinson described Geeling, a cystic fibrosis sufferer, as ''a lovely well-mannered boy'' who would be greatly missed by his teachers, friends and fellow pupils.
