Virginia Honor Roll Student Kills Parents Because They Took His iPod [Video]
Vincent Parker has confessed to the crime, which happened shortly before Christmas. He covered his mother with pepper spray, stabbed her in the eye and then beat her to death with a baseball bat and crowbar.
After his father came home, Vincent hit him with the crowbar and stabbed him, although he managed to report to authorities what his son did.
So, what made Vincent snap? His reasoning may surprise you:
I just remember getting mad. It’s all from my dad. All this stuff like my dad taking away my iPod and stuff.”
Vincent, who is an only child, is on the honor roll and has no criminal history, making this incident even more mind-boggling.
A psychiatric evaluation revealed Vincent is sane. He will be sentenced as an adult, although his lawyer would like part of the sentence to be served in a juvenile prison. He's scheduled to be sentenced in September.
