Funeral held for teen killed in Bronx school stabbing

By NY1 News  |

Family and friends said their final goodbyes Saturday morning to a 15-year-old boy who was stabbed to death in a Bronx school in late September.

Funeral services were held for Matthew McCree in Parkchester. Afterwards, his body was laid to rest at the Canarsie Cemetery in Brooklyn.

Police say classmate Abel Cedeno had killed McCree at the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation.

Some people claim McCree bullied the 18-year-old suspect, but McCree’s family denies those accusations.

Cedeno is being held at Rikers Island and faces several charges, including murder.

He also allegedly stabbed and critically injured another student.
