Alleged Text-Rage Beating Accomplice: ‘I'm Sorry'

TAMPA, FL. - A 13-year-old Florida girl charged in connection with the savage beating of her friend said Thursday she did not think the boy charged with the assault would follow through on texted threats of violence.

"If I knew he was going to do it, then I probably would have done something about it," Kayla Manson told TODAY's Meredith Vieira in New York. "I wouldn't really hurt somebody, and wouldn't help someone hurt somebody."

Manson is a central figure in the case that shocked the nation on March 24, when 15-year-old Wayne Treacy attacked fellow Deerfield Beach Middle School student Josie Ratley, also 15, while she was waiting for her school bus. The attack followed an exchange of text messages that began with Ratley telling Treacy that he shouldn't be seeing her friend, Manson.

Treacy told police he snapped when Ratley made a reference to his deceased older brother, who committed suicide last year. After texting Ratley that he was going to kill her, he put on his steel-toed boots and rode his bike three miles to the school.

Treacy did not know Ratley and asked Manson to identify her for him. After pointing out her friend, Manson said she got on the bus to go home and did not see what happened next. Treacy threw Ratley to the ground, pounded her head against the concrete sidewalk and kicked her repeatedly with the steel-toed boots.

Ratley somehow survived the attack.
