The 13-year-old is a student at Southmoreland Middle School. The 16-year old is a sophomore at the high school.

The 13-year-old told KDKA earlier this week that the fight began as a disagreement over a boy, but escalated when the 16-year old told her she looked pregnant.

Sources tell KDKA that police plan to charge the 13-year-old’s mother, Chassidy Murphy, with encouraging her daughter to fight.

Those charges are expected to be filed on Monday.
