DUCHESNE, Utah (AP) -- Two Duchesne High School students who allegedly admitted to creating two prank "death lists" have been suspended for the rest of the year.

School officials say the two seniors will be able to get their high school diplomas if they complete their course work through the school district's packet program.

However, they will NOT be able to take part in graduation ceremonies in June.

The teens are accused of making up two hit lists earlier this month and then trying to pin it on other students. The lists included names of some of their own friends and a few faculty members.

Duchesne High Principal Stan Young said the 17-year-olds meant no harm, but the situation had to be taken seriously.

The Duchesne County Attorney's Office is still considering what charges, if any, will be filed against the teens.
