LAS VEGAS (AP) — Four of the eight Las Vegas high school students accused of beating their schoolmate to death in a brawl captured on cellphone video have made their first appearances in the adult court system. A judge on Friday ordered them held without bail pending their next court date on Tuesday. Those four are either 16 or 17 years old. Four other suspects are under 16 and hearings will be held to determine if they will be charged as adults. Police on Tuesday arrested the eight students in connection with the Nov. 1 brawl that left 17-year-old Jonathan Lewis Jr. dead.
