DOVER, Del. (AP)- Two 16-year-old girls charged with conspiracy in a Delaware high school restroom assault that left another girl dead have waived arraignment and are now scheduled for trial.
    
The two girls, charged in an April 21 altercation at Wilmington's Howard High School of Technology that resulted in the death of 16-year-old Amy Joyner-Francis, had been scheduled to appear Thursday morning in Family Court in Wilmington. Their trials are scheduled for June 15.
    
A third 16-year-old, accused of repeatedly hitting Joyner-Francis in the head and torso, is charged with criminally negligent homicide.
    
The Associated Press is not naming any of the suspects because they are juveniles.
    
Authorities say Joyner-Francis, who had a pre-existing heart condition, died of sudden cardiac death, with a contributing factor of physical and emotional stress due to physical assault.
