Methuen High student accused of threatening to kill classmates

Posted: Updated:

METHUEN (AP) Prosecutors say a 17-year-old Methuen High School student is being held without bond after telling a classmate he was going "pull another Columbine."

Jacob Butze-Maille is charged with witness intimidation, making a bomb threat and threatening to commit a crime.

Prosecutors say Butze-Maille told a classmate that he was going to buy an AK-47 assault rifle and that he hated everyone at the high school and was going to shoot them. He is accused of telling the classmate he would shoot her first if she told anyone.

Butze-Maille enrolled at Methuen High last year. He has reportedly been staying at the St. Anne's Home, which has a program for troubled children.

Essex County District Attorney spokeswoman Carrie Kimball Monahan says prosecutors argued Friday that Butze-Maille was dangerous and should be held. The judge agreed. He is due back in court Jan. 12.
