    A New Jersey teenager charged with fatally stabbing his sister in December will be tried as an adult.

    A state judge in Bergen County issued the ruling on Thursday.
     
    Authorities say Travis Gallo, who was 17 at the time, stabbed his 20-year-old sister, Teia, multiple times with a kitchen knife in their family's home in Washington Township, an affluent suburb just northwest of upper Manhattan.
     
    Travis Gallo has been held at a juvenile detention facility since his arrest, but The Record reports he was transferred to the county jail after Thursday's ruling. His bail was set at $2 million.
     
    Robert Gallo, a gynecologist with a practice in Hackensack, and his wife are the parents of nine biological children and three adopted children, including Travis and Teia.
