An 11-year-old faces a reckless conduct charge in the September stabbing of a 7-year-old in Lansing.

This is an update to an exclusive story Eyewitness News reported in late September.

It was on September 28 when police responded to a call of a child who had been stabbed in the head with a utility knife.

JaMarkus Lofton underwent surgery and was released from the hospital five days later.

Lofton's mother says the incident happened following a basketball game when another child pulled the knife on her child.
