FORT LAUDERDALE — A 15-year-old teenager accused of brutally beating another teen outside a middle school in Deerfield Beach, Fla., in March faced a Broward County judge Saturday morning who denied him bond.

Wayne Treacy is being charged with attempted first degree murder as an adult, according to the Broward State Attorney's Office.

"This is unfortunately yet another one of those cases involving senseless violence that will forever change the course of the lives of these young people and everyone who cares about them," said Maria Schneider, assistant state attorney-in-charge of the Juvenile Unit in the Broward State Attorney's Office.

Treacy has been held in juvenile detention since the attack. Friday evening, Broward Sheriff's deputies transported the baby-faced Treacy to the main Broward County Jail. He will be held in the juvenile section of the adult jail.
