Boy Found Guilty of Murder

A 12-year-old boy who fatally shot his mother after an argument over his chores was found guilty of pre-meditated murder.

Judge James Conlogue found the boy guilty after a hearing on Friday in Cochise County Superior Court in the southern Arizona town of Bisbee. The boy is not being identified because he was charged as a juvenile.

Conlogue ruled that prosecutors had proved the boy acted intentionally and with pre-meditation when he shot Sara Madrid, 34, eight times on August 1. The shooting happened after the boy had argued with his mother over his chores.

Madrid had left the family home after the argument, and the boy got a .22-calibre pistol from her bedroom closet, waited for her to return and then repeatedly shot her, according to court testimony. - Yahoo!
I don't know if this is worse than the kid who murdered his mom for taking away Halo 3.
