Second teenager charged over deadly Canberra skate park fight that killed 18yo



A second teenager has been charged over a deadly fight at a skate park in Canberra’s south, where an 18-year-old was stabbed to death.

The charges were laid yesterday, hours after after a 16-year-old boy faced the ACT Childrens Court charged with murder and affray over the fight.

Police allege the 16-year-old armed himself with a knife during a pre-arranged fight with the 18-year-old man before stabbing him to death.

The boy did not apply for bail or enter a plea, and has been remanded in custody.

Later yesterday, a 17-year-old also appeared in court charged with affray for his alleged role in the fight.

He did not enter any pleas, and was released on bail.

Police say the fatal fight, at Weston Skate Park in September, was arranged after a group of people exchanged threats online.

Police say the threats escalated to the point where a fight was organised at the skate park.

Both teenagers will return to court in November.

Police say they expect to make more arrests.
