KENTWOOD, Mich. (AP) - A young man who was 12 years old when he fatally stabbed another child in the Grand Rapids area has been released from court supervision. Jamarion Lawhorn now is 19.

He was at Evart Youth Center, a secure treatment and education site, until last March. He’s done well while living with a family. Probation officer Dan Cory says Lawhorn recently bought his own vehicle.

Cory says he's turned into a “fine young man.” Lawhorn apologized again to the family of a 9-year-old boy who was randomly stabbed at a playground in Kentwood in 2014. At trial, there was evidence of Lawhorn’s stormy childhood, neglect and abuse.
