Ann Maguire stabbing: Boy to appear in court accused of Leeds teacher's classroom murder
Mrs Maguire was the first teacher stabbed to death in a British classroom
Friday 11 July 2014
A 15-year-old boy will appear in court today accused of murdering a teacher who was stabbed to death in her classroom.
Ann Maguire 61, was fatally stabbed at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Halton Moor, Leeds, on April 28.
Mrs Maguire's death was the first time a teacher has been stabbed to death in a British classroom and the first killing of a teacher in a school since the 1996 Dunblane massacre.
She first went to Corpus Christi as a student teacher and last year the school held a celebration of her 40 years of service.
This year, she had moved to working four days a week ahead of her planned retirement.
Mrs Maguire, who was head of Year 11 at the school for more than 10 years, lived in the Moortown area of Leeds with her husband, Don, who is a former maths teacher and landscape gardener.
The 15-year-old accused of murdering the teacher cannot be named for legal reasons.
He appeared in both the youth court and crown court in May.
