Anaheim man charged in stabbing death of 12-year-old-boy

 An Anaheim man was charged Wednesday with the stabbing death of a 12-year-old Bryan Ocampo boy who was walking home from school.

Bryan Ocampo, 18, began fighting with Juan Martinez, pulled a knife from his pocket and stabbed the boy in the chest, the Orange County district attorney's office said.

Police said Monday's attack was apparently sparked by a rivalry between two graffiti crews.

Ocampo was being held at the Orange County jail.
