A DISTRICT Court judge in Banská Bystrica has ordered two youths, both 14, to be held in prison pending trial for their part in a murder plot .
If convicted, they face 10-12.5 years in prison for plotting to murder a guard at their detention centre in Čerenčany, in the Rimavská Sobota district, the SITA newswire wrote.
Prosecutors say the teenagers and a third youth plotted to break out of the centre on the night of September 20 by murdering a guard and stealing his mobile, money, and keys. They had allegedly hidden an iron hook, office scissors and a wooden spike in the toilets as part of their plan. The plot was thwarted when the third youth informed the authorities.
Michal M. and Lukáš Z., who arrived at the detention centre in September on minor offences, face charges of conspiracy to commit murder.
