    Ivan Mejia, 17, a Wylie East High School student, was found dead in March 2014.

    A second Wylie teen accused of killing a schoolmate will be tried as an adult, state District Judge Cynthia Wheless ruled today.

    The decision comes after a three-day hearing this week to determine if Adam Staup, 16, would remain in the juvenile justice system or be certified as an adult.
