Abel Cedeno, 18, pled not guilty on the manslaughter and assault charges he’s facing in the stabbing of two fellow students inside his Bronx high school.

“The defendant allegedly pulled a knife and stabbed one youth to death and critically injured another in front of dozens of students who remain traumatized,” said Bronx District Attorney Clark. “Young lives were shattered in a place where bright futures are supposed to begin.”

Clark added that Cedeno was indicted on first-degree manslaughter, first-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. He was arraigned Wednesday before Bronx Supreme Court Justice William Mogulescu and continued held on $500,000 bail. He is due back in court on November 29.

According to the investigation, on September, in a classroom inside the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation at 2024 Mohegan Avenue, Cedeno slashed and stabbed Matthew McCree, 15, in the chest causing his death; and Ariane Laboy, 16, inflicting multiple slash wounds to his left arm and a stab wound to his right chest, causing serious physical injury.

Cedeno said that he stabbed his classmates because they were bullying him
