Six people have now been charged with murder, the latest being 19-year-old Kayla Dawson.
A day after the alleged attack, before she was charged, she casually spoke to 7NEWS as she sipped a coffee.
“I can’t go back to my house because it’s still under investigation,” she told reporters.
“He’s a good guy but he’s just brought up the wrong way,” she said of the alleged victim.
She was on Sunday charged with murder, take or detain in company with intent to get advantage occasion actual bodily harm, and cause grievous bodily harm to person with intent.
She’s also alleged to have run to a neighbour asking if they knew how to perform CPR.
Dawson faced Blacktown Local Court on Monday, where she was refused bail.
“These are very serious charges and Ms Dawson understands the seriousness of them,” her lawyer Mary Faiz said outside court.
“She has instructed us to make a bail application on a later date.”
The boy died at Westmead Hospital on Saturday after suffering injuries to his head and chest.
Disturbing video of the attack circulated on social media, appearing to show the 16-year-old boy being bashed.
Five others – four boys and one girl aged between 13 and 15 – have been charged with murder.
