The father of the 16-year-old kid who fatally stabbed a lacrosse star apologizes to the victim’s family

The father of the teenager charged as an adult for the murder of Connecticut high school lacrosse player James McGrath has apologized to the 17-year-old’s family.

Raul Eliah Valle, from Milford, 16, is charged with the Saturday stabbing death of  McGrath during a fight outside a Shelton house party.

Valle was taken into custody early Wednesday – four days after the alcohol-fueled assault that left Fairfield Prep student McGrath dead and three others injured.

The 16-year-old was charged with murder and three counts of first-degree assault and is being held on $2million bond, police said.

Valle’s father Raul was seen outside a Derby courtroom on Thursday with his head tucked underneath a black suit jacket, quietly saying: ‘I’m sorry to the family,’ courtant.com reported.
