Teen charged in teacher's murder
DANVERS, Massachusetts (NEWSCHANNEL 3) A student at a high school in northeastern Massachusetts is being held without bail, accused of killing his math teacher.
"She was like the nicest teacher you could ever have. I can't believe it," said one student.
14-year-old Philip Chism is charged with the murder of Colleen Ritzer, a 24-year-old teacher at Danvers High School in Massachusetts.
Police say Ritzer's body was found behind the school, while they were searching for Chism, who was reported missing that same day.
Right now, police are not releasing a cause of death or a motive in the case.
Chism is due back in court next month.
