The State’s Attorney for the Judicial District of New Haven,  Michael Dearington,  says after his study of the events leading to the September stabbing of two teenagers on Kensington Street in Meriden,  he has concluded that the man who stabbed the two should not be charged.  One of the teens, 15-year-old Deandre Felton, died as as result of his wounds.

In his four-page letter to Meriden’s police chief. Dearington says witnesses identified the teenagers as the aggressors,  and the 20-year-old man who stabbed them — identified only as “G”  in the paperwork –as a stranger who posed no threat to the two,  and appears to have had no contact or association with either .  He told police he did not pull the knife to defend himself,  but in hopes of scaring them away.

A Meriden police report last month also found no reason to charge “G.”

The families of the two teens have disputed  the police findings in public statements,  but  Dearington says the mother of the surviving stab victim said,  on advice of her lawyer, her son would not give a statement to police or allow photographs to be taken of his injury.
