WHITE SUPREMACIST KILLED

SANTA ANA, Calif.
More than two years after a 10-year-old California boy fatally shot his sleeping neo-Nazi father, a judge will consider where the child should spend his sentence for second-degree murder.
The child was convicted earlier this year of shooting his father, 32-year-old Jeff Hall, in the head as he slept on the living room couch.
Defense attorneys want the boy sent to a residential treatment facility for his emotional disabilities, but prosecutors want him to do time at a facility run by the state's juvenile justice system.
The boy could remain in custody until he is 23 for the May 2011 killing.
