Fifth graders allegedly plot rape, murder

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Two fifth grade boys in Washington state are accused of plotting to rape and kill a girl in their class.

The alleged plan was to have one of the boys carry out the rape; the other was to shoot anyone who came near.

They were foiled after a fourth grader saw them bring a knife onto the school bus, and reported it to a teacher's aide.

One of the boys reportedly said he would kill the student who reported the knife.

Both boys are charged with conspiracy to commit first degree murder, juvenile firearm possession and witness tampering.

They will be charged as juveniles. If convicted, they can face up to two years in juvenile lockup.
