Jodie Chesney was attacked in Harold Hill in Romford, east London, on 1 March.
The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
He was also charged with possession of a stun gun. Two men and a boy have already been charged with 17-year-old Jodie’s murder.
