The Daily Camera reports that prosecutors Thursday charged 19-year-old Mary Elizabeth Essa with 18 felony counts that include second-degree assault. Prosecutors had earlier charged 21-year-old Thomas Ricardo Cunning with similar counts. The incident last week at the school sickened seven students and professor.

In an unrelated incident, a 14-year-old girl was sent to a hospital Wednesday after eating a marijuana brownie at a high school. The (Colorado Springs) Gazette reports that a 14-year-old boy was arrested and released to his parents.

Police told the Gazette the girl knew what was in the brownie before she ate it.
