Prosecutors: Try Teen as Youthful Offender

 INDEPENDENCE, IA (AP) -- Prosecutors say a 14-year-old girl charged with attempted murder and other crimes should be tried as a youthful offender, a hybrid alternative to Iowa's juvenile and adult court systems.
   The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that the Buchanan County Attorney's office has filed a motion to move the case out of the juvenile court system.
   The girl is accused of using a cord to choke a staff member at Four Oaks, a facility on the state's Mental Health Institute campus in Independence. Authorities say she pushed and punched Four Oaks employees and threatened them with scissors. One employee was treated at a hospital emergency room.
   The girl also is charged with going armed with intent, intimidation with a dangerous weapon and willful injury.
