Saying he didn’t like Suzette York and she made him angry, Eduardo Marmolejo told police Wednesday that he had planned to kill his principal since May.
The 17-year-old student at Memphis Junior Academy chose Wednesday because he knew he’d be alone in a classroom with York, 49, according to a police affidavit. So, at about 11 a.m., Marmolejo stabbed her multiple times, leaving her in a pool of blood at the East Memphis private school at 50 N. Mendenhall, police said.
Those chilling details were included in the affidavit obtained late Wednesday by The Commercial Appeal. Marmolejo, incarcerated at Juvenile Detention Center, is being charged with first-degree murder.
