Winnipeg police have laid second-degree murder charges against a 17-year-old girl following the death of another teen.

There, they discovered Jesse Cole Wapash, 19, stabbed and in critical condition.

Wapash was rushed to hospital shortly after 11:30 p.m. Almost two weeks later, on Tuesday, June 25, Wapash died.

A 17-year-old girl was originally charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon and failure to comply with a sentence. On Wednesday, she was charged with second-degree murder.

The teen remains in custody at the Manitoba Youth Centre.
