177. On premeditation
He may have meant to scare the kid, or he may not have had any clear idea of what he was doing, which is often the case with emotional duress. He may not have intended to kill him at all. For all we know, he may not have even intended to kill him when he did. There's also an argument about whether premeditation is possible of the person isn't in their right mind.

Some other details in another story--the father has no history of any kind of violence or arrest. The kid was supposed to have been a great guy, too, with decent grades and a lot of friends. The mother claims she took the daughter to the hospital and that there was no sexual evidence, but the police say there is no record of that and there should be, and they are following up on it. Just some interesting details. It's a horrible story.
