CINCINNATI — The juvenile court trial of a Cincinnati high school girl accused of beating up a female classmate was postponed because a surveillance video from that day disappeared.

The 14-year-old teen and her mother were charged in the classroom scuffle that left a 15-year-old with cuts and bruises.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that the daughter's attorney did not received a classroom video. The attorney wants to know if video was improperly destroyed.

Cincinnati school district lawyers had said some video that apparently was taken no longer exists.

Authorities said the 14-year-old hit her classmate with fists, feet and a combination lock while the 14-year-old's mother held the classmate down.

The daughter is charged with aggravated trespassing and assault counts. The mother says the 15-year-old attacked her and her daughter Feb. 7 at the school.
