Cry me a river

My prediction?

He'll be certified to stand trial as an adult.

Oh  boohoo what part of social skill do you need to not know you shouldn't stab folks to death?

A teen accused of stabbing a man to death is extremely intelligent but lacks social skills and has a troubled past, according to witnesses who testified in the murder suspect's adult certification hearing Friday.

State District Judge Carmen Kelsey postponed the end of the 16-year-old murder suspect's hearing until Wednesday, when she'll determine if he will face the first-degree felony charge as an adult or a juvenile.

The boy's probation officer, Traci Geppert, recommended he be certified as an adult, adding that the teen doesn't have time to carry out a mandatory 3-year sentence before his release from juvenile custody on his 19th birthday.
