Man faces felony charges for allegedly giving false information

In Jan. 2013, the body of a high school student was located rolled up in a gym mat in a Georgia high school. Another boy who was apparently a student at the time of the incident was brought in for questioning after telling some of his neighbors that he had heard two other students discussing the hand that they had allegedly had in the boy’s death. However, police recently arrested the student who provided police with a statement on felony charges.
