UPDATE: Sarah Piccolo to be Tried as an Adult

By Meghan Matthews. CREATED Nov 19, 2013

Lincoln, NE - A judge has decided that a Lincoln teenager accused of stabbing a classmate at school will be tried as an adult. 

Investigators believe 16 year old Sarah Piccolo attacked Ellen Kopetzky with a knife and hammer, in a bathroom at Pius X High School last month. Piccolo then drove to Kansas where police caught her. 

Piccolo has pleaded not guilty to the assault. Last week, Piccolo's lawyer asked the judge to move the case to juvenile court.
