LINCOLN — A prosecutor alleged Friday that Sarah Piccolo intended to do more than harm a fellow student when she took a knife and hammer to Lincoln's Pius X High School last month.
“Her motive was to quite simply kill as many people as she could,” Deputy Lancaster County Attorney Bruce Prenda told a judge as he argued against transferring Piccolo's case to juvenile court. Prenda did not elaborate on his comment at the hearing.
