HARTFORD, Conn. -- A lawyer for the teenager charged with murder in the stabbing of a fellow student at a Connecticut high school says his client is under psychological evaluation.

Attorney Richard Meehan said Saturday that the 16-year-old suspect was committed and will likely remain in a medical facility for two weeks. He says the boy won't appear at an arraignment scheduled for Monday in New Haven.
