Adams is being held on $1 million bond pending arraignment later Tuesday. His case was not listed in online court records and it could not immediately be determined if he had retained a lawyer.
Police Chief Alaric Fox says the victim and the suspect knew each other and called it an isolated incident.
Brady was a junior at Enfield High School, where he played football and basketball. He did not live at the address where the stabbing took place.
Thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends of Justin Brady. You will be missed❤️
