Teens charged in alleged attempted murder, kidnapping plot to appear in court

Two high school seniors accused of taking part in a plot to try to kill a classmate will appear in court for the first time Monday morning.

Police charged Ashley Sams and Korbin Schwab with attempted murder and kidnapping.

The two Jackson County High School seniors and a third 17-year-old student are accused of taking Cheyenne Williams to Flatlick Falls and trying to push her off a cliff.

Kentucky State Police have said the case may have been the result of a prank, but Williams' mother is calling it a hate crime because her daughter is gay.

Members of the Kentucky Equality Federation are expected to be at Monday's arraignment.
