Hall, 15, appeared at a closed hearing Tuesday. His attorney, Mark Sherman, declined to comment on the allegations against his client. But he said he will be looking at police reports, witness statements and surveillance video.
"Anytime a child this young is accused of murder in adult court, you have to take a real close look at the evidence and proceed with diligence, thoroughness and compassion," said Sherman.
James McLamb, 22, of New Haven, is also being held on $2 million bond in the fatal stabbing. He is accused of punching Muralles after he was stabbed, and he is charged with murder, along with Hall. McLamb is due in court again in April.
