A 15-year-old youth charged with the murder on Sunday of a 17-year-old in a schoolyard in Kato Achaia in the Peloponnese following a fight between the pair was remanded in custody on Wednesday.

The youth was transferred to a juvenile detention center in Corinth amid tight security after appearing before an investigating magistrate and a prosecutor.
