A teenager, who was punished for his poor grades, was sentenced to six years in jail after he killed his parents and brother.
The incident occurred after he shot his mother with his grandfather’s hunting rifle. He then turned the gun on his father and brother.
The teenager, who was punished for his poor grades, was prohibited from using the Internet and watching TV as a punishment.
He lived with his dead parents and brother for several days before the shocking incident was discovered. On Saturday, it was revealed that the teen was sentenced to six years in jail and three years of probation.
The teenager, who is 16 years old at the time of the incident, will serve most of his sentence in a closed juvenile facility before he is transferred to an adult prison.
According to reports, he confessed to the crime during a trial that was conducted in secret.
If he were a year older, he would have faced a 10-year prison sentence. According to a local news outlet, the victim’s relatives would continue their efforts to get him disinherited. After his arrest, the teenager admitted that he carried out the crime due to his anger after he was left without a television or computer. He also said that he was forced to help out with household chores.
After killing his mother, the teenager shot his brother in the back. He then hid their bodies inside a storeroom before killing his father. After his father managed to wrestle the rifle away from him, the teenager retrieved it and shot two more times.
After killing his parents, the teenager spent the next few days playing video games. He also pretended to be a relative to call his school. After his concerned aunts showed up at their home, he confessed to the crime. Although experts interviewed by the authorities ruled out mental illness, the teenager stated that he knew what he did and confessed with “no regret.”
