BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A 13-year-old accused in the murder of another teen in Buffalo had to be arraigned again.

This time an interpreter was alongside Jean Sanchez, according to the teen’s attorney, so Sanchez could better understand what’s happening in court. Sanchez’s attorney says his client doesn’t understand English when it’s spoken too quickly.
