November trial set for boy accused of killing dad

Posted: Updated:

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - A northeast Kansas teenager accused of killing his father is scheduled to go to trial in November on a first-degree murder charge.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1zsolAg ) reports the 15-year-old Shawnee boy is being tried in juvenile court for the shooting death of his father last July.

A Johnson County District Court judge on Thursday denied a prosecution request to try the teen as an adult and scheduled the trial for Nov. 3 in the juvenile division.

The boy was 14 when he was accused of emptying a magazine of 16 bullets at his father. He testified at a hearing last month that his father physically and sexually abused him.

The Associated Press generally doesn't name juveniles accused of crimes unless they are tried in adult court.
