Bohemia teen accused of plotting to kill student speaks out

A Bohemia teen accused of plotting to kill students at a Suffolk school is speaking out from behind bars.

Seventeen-year-old Christopher Franko was arrested in 2007 for plotting a Columbine style attack at Connetquot High School.

Last week Franko was arrested again and charged with another plot to murder students.

Franko now tells Newsday he is a loving person and claims his girlfriend Dana Saltzman made up the story because she is angry with him.

Saltzman's attorney calls Franko "delusional."
