Granby boy to undergo psychiatric evaluation

The 13-year-old boy from Granby accused of setting another boy on fire has been sent for a psychiatric evaluation.

The boy, who cannot be named because he is a minor, was in court on Thursday in connection with the July 11 incident.

The two 13-year-olds were on a balcony when the accused sprayed the other boy with gasoline and lit a lighter.

The injured boy was burned on more than 50 per cent of his body.

The accused is due back in court August 21.
