A THIRD-FORM stu­dent of Ja­maica Col­lege was stabbed and killed on a bus near the school yes­ter­day af­ter­noon by a man at­tempt­ing to steal his cell phone.

He is Ni­cholas Fran­cis, who was from the same form as an­other stu­dent who re­cently died of nat­u­ral causes.

Re­ports are that Fran­cis boarded a green Coaster bus in the vicin­ity of Blue Cas­tle Drive on Old Hope Road in St An­drew.

He was stabbed in the hand and chest by his as­sailant after re­sist­ing de­mands for his cell phone.

Fran­cis was then thrown from the bus and broke his arm in the fall. The driver of the bus took him to the Univer­sity Hospi­tal of the West Indies, where he died.

Fran­cis played an ac­tive role at the funeral for 14-year-old Jor­dan Miller, who died at home in late Au­gust.
