An 8th grader. I hope they are tried as adults and get the maximum.
Did she know them?

Affidavits filed in support of the criminal charges do not say how Alexis initially met her alleged killers.
Her friends told detectives that in the hours before she was killed, Alexis was communicating on Facebook with someone identified as “Malik.” The friends also said that they gave Alexis a ride to the 7-Eleven at 10615 Blue Ridge Blvd. after she made arrangements to meet someone there...
After arriving at the convenience store, Alexis’ friends said they told her not to get in a car with the people she planned to meet, but she did anyway. The friends said they tried to follow the car, a white four-door Chrysler that was occupied by two men with dreadlocks, but they lost sight of it.

Other witnesses told police that a "Malik" and "Nick" were in the white Chrysler, and they took the victim to the water park where Kennedy struck Alexis in the face with a handgun and Carter shot her multiple times.
Prosecutors have requested each defendant be held on a cash bond of $500,000.

The family of Alexis Kane, the 14-year-old girl found assaulted and repeatedly shot in the back area of The Bay Water Park in south Kansas City says they hope prosecutors will seek the death penalty.
The three suspects charged in her murder appeared in court Monday...
“I was hurt because nobody didn’t show any sorry, they didn’t show anything,” LaShonda Kane, Alexis’ mother, said after the court appearance Monday. “In fact, one of them kind of smiled at me so that was, so that was pretty hard to deal with. I don’t see how he thought it was funny.”

Senseless. Why would they hurt such a beautiful young lady? I have no words. Just heartbroken for Alexis' family.
