His sister, who is 14, has been charged with first degree murder, a charge filed within the juvenile court system. First degree murder is defined as being premeditated.

Officials haven’t said whether she’ll be tried as an adult.

    This is a shame. Two lives destroyed.

    People need to stop popping out babies, just to let them run wild. Things like this would happen much less. I am going to assume there was not much parent involvement with these two.

    I totally agree with the obvious lack of parental involvement! If parents don’t start raising their children with some comman sense and some self respect, instead of little heathens!!
