BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- The 14-year-old boy accused of stabbing a female classmate on the playground at Aspen Creek K-8 school will remain in the Adams County Juvenile Detention Center, a judge ruled Wednesday.

The stabbing happened April 30 on the playground reportedly after a joke went too far.

The boy appeared in court Wednesday and Judge Francis Wasserman denied a request for bond instead of being released to his family, saying he posed a risk to the community.

Wasserman said the boy's record of fighting at school and the fact he might have created a "kill list" that was found by police made him a risk to the community.

When the stabbing happened, witnesses said they were surprised at how quickly it happened.

The boy’s identity is being withheld because he is charged as a minor. He is charged with attempted-first degree murder, assault and possession of a weapon on school grounds.

He is also being charged as a violent and aggravated juvenile offender, which are both sentencing enhancers.

A preliminary hearing was set for July 1.
