Student Stabs Classmate

After Millefolie collapsed to the floor, Hensley “continued to stab and slash” the teen, Burroughs testified. There was no evidence or testimony about who may have intervened to stop the assault, but the school’s principal in a statement to students and parents said the situation was contained within five to six minutes.

A Manchester High School student walked up behind a fellow student he knew in a music classroom Monday and repeatedly stabbed and slashed the victim in an attempt to kill him, a juvenile intake officer testified Tuesday at the defendant’s detention hearing.

Reading from a police report during the hearing in Chesterfield County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, Chesterfield Intake officer Ronald Burroughs told a judge that Chad Hensley, 17, approached fellow student Benjamin Millefolie, also 17, from behind and began stabbing him multiple times in front of a class full of students.

Hensley’s parents have retained attorney Cary Bowen to represent their son and, at Bowen’s request, the judge scheduled the teen’s next hearing on Oct. 27. Bowen plans to ask the court to have a psychologist evaluate Hensley to determine whether he is mentally competent to stand trial.
