NORTHAMPTON, Mass. -- An attorney for a teen accused of bullying a 15-year-old Massachusetts girl who hanged herself says there's no evidence his client did anything wrong.

Michael Jennings, the attorney for 17-year-old Kayla Narey, said Wednesday that he'll ask a judge to review the grand jury report and dismiss the charges. He says Narey never hurt Phoebe Prince, never threatened to and never did anything else that would cause Prince to harm herself.

Narey is among six South Hadley teenagers charged in connection with Prince's suicide in January. Prosecutors say Prince, a high school freshman, was despondent after incessant bullying.

All six of the teens have pleaded not guilty.
