October 16, 2015 by Eric L Guster

A Tennessee community has buried a girl allegedly killed by an 11-year-old boy over a puppy, and more details have emerged about the gun used in the shooting. The preteen faces first-degree murder charges in the death of MaKayla "BooBah" Dyer, 8. He fired at her from his house Saturday, killing the girl who was in her yard, Jefferson County Sheriff Bud McCoig told The Washington Post. The boy used his father’s 12-gauge shotgun, which he got from an unlocked closet, the sheriff told the paper. He is being held on a first-degree murder charge in a juvenile detention center. The center’s superintendent, Richard Bean, said the boy is the youngest held there on a murder charge in his 44-year career. Bean described him as "very tiny," weighing about 55 pounds. He is in a regular "pod" that holds up to 16 other juveniles between ages 12 and 17.

Road Rage Leads to Capital Murder Conviction. Can The Person Be Held Civilly Liable as Well?

October 15, 2015 by Eric L Guster

A 27-year-old man today was sentenced to life without parole after he was convicted of capital murder and reckless endangerment in a 2013 Bibb County shooting death. District Attorney Michael Jackson said the death Jason Wayne Hutchinson, 31, of Brierfield was "part road rage, party bullying." Nicholas Robert Dunlap, of Centreville, had been bullying people, including Hutchinson, Jackson said. On Sept. 22, 2013, the two met up on the road. Both pulled over and Dunlap punched Hutchinson in the stomach, Jackson said. Later that evening, they saw each other again as they were driving in the Six Mile community. Hutchinson and a woman were in one car and Dunlap was in another. "That’s when he shot him," Jackson said. The woman told authorities she heard several gunshots, and Hutchinson was shot in the back of the head. She was able to grab the steering wheel and guide the car to a stop.
