FATHER FATALLY SHOT
Judge rules southern Ohio boy, 15, won't be tried as adult in fatal shooting of father

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, June 13, 2014 8:19 AM EDT
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio


A judge has ruled that a 15-year-old southern Ohio boy accused of fatally shooting his father won't be tried as an adult.

The judge in the Ohio River city of Portsmouth made the ruling Thursday after a court-appointed psychologist said in a written report that he believes the teen can be treated and rehabilitated in the juvenile justice system.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the boy was 14 when he killed his 48-year-old father on March 16.

The psychologist wrote that the teen was in "a markedly dysfunctional family" and was exposed to past verbal or physical abuse before getting a gun and shooting his father while the man was asleep.

The report says teen has no prior history of violent or delinquent behavior.
