The Montrose County District Attorney's Office has filed formal charges against the teen suspected of stabbing a Montrose High School student.

With the help of our friends at the Montrose Daily Press, 11 News has learned 14–year–old Michael Yates is being charged as an adult with attempted first degree murder and conspiracy to commit first degree assault.
