    12 year old murderer

    By KRISTEN WYATT, Associated Press Writer

    DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. - A 12-year-old boy accused of beating and stabbing to death his mother and younger brother was charged as a juvenile Monday with two counts of first-degree murder.


    The boy, whose name was not released because of his age, will remain in custody until his next hearing May 15.

    Katrina Denise Powe, 31, and 9-year-old Mystery Toma Hillian were found dead Sunday in the family's apartment outside Washington after police received a 911 call. Authorities have not said who made the call.

    Detectives interviewed the boy and arrested him there, said Cpl. Clinton Copeland. He said the boy implicated himself.

    Copeland initially said a metal bar believed used in the killings was normally used to secure a car's steering wheel to prevent theft, but later corrected that description.

    No relatives attended the hearing and the boy was represented by an unnamed public defender. Prosecutors said the 12-year-old's father was on his way Monday to Maryland from North Carolina.

    Children under 14 cannot be charged with homicide as adults in Maryland and are not be eligible for the death penalty, said Ramon Korionoff, a spokesman with the office of the county state's attorney.

    At 12, the defendant is believed to be one of the youngest ever charged with homicide in Maryland. If found responsible for the deaths, the boy could be held until he is 21 years of age, said Deputy State's Attorney Patricia Smoot.

    Neighbors described the 12-year-old boy as a bully.

    "He was a bad kid," said 10-year-old Jasmine Williams. "He would get himself in trouble hitting people."

    Other neighbors remembered the two boys playing football on a grass quadrangle in the center of the complex of three-story apartment buildings just inside the Capital Beltway. Balloons and a bouquet of flowers on Monday marked the building where the family lived.

    Barbara Addison, 53, a resident of the garden apartments, said her grandson played with Mystery.

    "It's just devastating," she said. "He was a nice kid."

    Well, they said the kid implicated himself. I'm sure some bleeding heart will get this kid a good lawyer though.
