A Comox Valley teen was pronounced guilty of second-degree murder Wednesday morning in a Courtenay courtroom.
Court heard throughout the boy’s trial that James Denton, 19, was stabbed twice last July — once in the left armpit and once in the left lower back.
The incident happened near the entrance to G.P. Vanier Secondary School following the conclusion of a day-long music festival at the nearby Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds.
The accused, who was 16 at the time of the incident, cannot be named because of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
