The 16-year-old boy accused of stabbing a 15-year-old girl then himself at Burke High earlier this month appeared in court Monday. 

Prosecutors have charged Nicholas Cisar, as an adult, with assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony. He had his bond set at $500,000. 

Administrators and police locked down Burke High three weeks ago after a school resource officer found a teen with stab wounds. The 15-year-old is still recovering from her injuries.
