Teen accused of killing sleeping father
SCIOTO COUNTY, Ohio (WKRC) -- A 14-year-old murder suspect, accused of shooting his father, will be charged as an adult.
The teen is accused of shooting and killing his dad while he slept. This happened outside Columbus. Investigators say after the shooting the teen biked four miles to a classmate's house.
Deputies say the suspect says he was being verbally abused by his father.
"Mentally just draining the kid, telling him he's worthless. The boy said he just snapped, he reached his breaking point," Captain David Hall of the Scioto County Sheriff's Office said.
Right now it isn't clear where the gun came from or how many times the father was shot.
