Florence teen to be tried as adult for stabbing death

FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) - The judge presiding over the Autumn Wood murder trial denied a motion to move the case to juvenile court.

Wood is accused of stabbing Brooklyn Hollins during a party in Florence in March. Hollins died from her injuries.

Attorneys for 17-year-old Wood asked for the law allowing teenagers to be tried as adults unconstitutional.

Wood had a first call scheduled in Lauderdale County court Monday morning. That hearing was canceled.

Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 8th.
