killed his father, his stepmother, and his sister
He was convicted of first-degree murder for the death of his sister Marilea, second-degree murder for his stepmother Tryone and voluntary manslaughter for his father Paul
Studies show that while youth violence appears to have declined, those statistics center only on actual arrests, not on violent acts that might have ended a life but did not. More than 400,000 youths aged ten to nineteen were injured as a result of violence in 2000, says one report, and 15 to 30 % of adolescent girls admit to committing a serious violent act. More and more kids are getting involved in risky behavior, searching for thrills and feeling less ashamed of harm done to others.
The annual number of murders committed by children under 18 peaked at 3,000 within the past two years, and has begun to drop, according to Ewing, but "while the number has gone down, the nature seems to be getting worse," he said. "We've graduated into the era of juvenile mass murder. You're seeing more violent killings, cases where kids are desecrating victims, more senseless killings, more killings that involve mutilation, that involve sexual acting out towards victims. I think what we're seeing is kids are catching up to adult murderers.
