FORT WORTH, Texas -

 A Texas judge has ordered a 13-year-old girl to be detained as she awaits trial in the stabbing death of a 14-year-old girl. The Star-Telegram reports that State District Judge Timothy Menikos decided at the Tarrant County juvenile court Thursday to hold the teen in custody.

Fort Worth Police spokesman Bradley Perez said the juvenile suspect was arrested Wednesday. He said a verbal altercation early Tuesday morning at a Fort Worth apartment complex led to the death of 14-year-old Nylah Lightfoot.

The Tarrant County medical examiner's office said Lightfoot was pronounced dead upon arrival at a Fort Worth hospital from stab wounds to the neck and chest.

Lightfoot's mother, Anntoinette Carter, said the two girls were on-and-off friends. She said the argument between the two girls began when the suspect asked to spend the night at the mother's house and she said "no." 

The Star-Telegram reports that the suspect asked Lightfoot to come get her clothes at her house and that the two girls got into an argument, which led to a fight, Carter said.
