Charges Likely To Be Upgraded In Teen's Death

Murder charges will likely be filed in the death of a Lexington teenager who suffered head trauma during a school fight.

15-year-old Bobby Covert fell and hit his head last month at McCallie School in Chattanooga, after being punched by another student. Covert died from head trauma last week at UK hospital.

Police initially charged a student with aggravated assault after the fight, but according to the Lexington Herald Leader, those charges will likely be upgraded.
