An 11 year old boy charged with first degree murder!? That's preposterous!...or is it?
On February 20, 2009, 11 year old Jordan Brown shot and executed his 26 year old soon to be step mother named Kenzie Marie Houk.
Placed in criminal court Brown was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole, on a double charge of first degree murder (Houk was pregnant).
Prosecutors fought to have brown placed in Juvinile court; they then won. At the age of 17, Brown was put in rehabilitation and counciling until the age of 21.
The outcome seemed reasonable; Nothing wrong with rehabilitation, maybe counciling and nurturing is all he needs.
