STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A 15-year-old Connecticut boy is being held on $2 million bond after he was charged in the slaying of a man who police say had spilled coffee on him.

Police tell the Stamford Advocate that 52-year-old Antonio Muralles was leaving a Stamford restaurant March 11 when he bumped into the teen, spilling the coffee. Police say the teenager stabbed Muralles.

The boy appeared in a closed hearing Tuesday. He didn't enter a plea, and his attorney declined to comment on the allegations. The newspaper said the case was moved to adult court.

Twenty-two-year-old James McLamb of New Haven also has been charged with murder in Muralles' death and is being held on $2 million bond. His lawyer says he is reviewing the charge.

Police are looking for a third suspect.
