WINTER HAVEN, FLORIDA- Two young teens were arrested on stalking charges after a sheriff says they tormented a 12-year-old girl into committing suicide.

The 14 and 12 year-olds were taken into custody after the 14-year-old posted a comment online saying she bullied Rebbecca Sedwick and that she didn't give a "add the last word yourself."

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says Sedwick was tormented online and at school by as many as 15 girls.

She climbed a tower and jumped to her death last month.
