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 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.
