Lawyers for the teenager accused of beating, assaulting, and killing 10-year-old Lily Peters has more than two dozen reasons why he says the case should be tried in juvenile court.
New court documents show the suspect’s lawyers believe he will be better served by a trial in juvenile court, and a sentence in juvenile detention. The teen, who was 14-years-old when police say he allegedly killed Peters last year, is waiting to go on trial. The decision about juvenile or adult court is just the first step. That decision is due before January.
