17 year-old kid kills parents who had disciplined him over crazy party. He was charged with murder but he threw himself on the mercy of the court. Said he deserved mercy because he's an orphan
"He hasn't shown any emotion at all"
An Alabama teenager murdered his parents after getting in trouble over trashing the house during a raucous party, authorities said.
Jesse Holton, 17, denied fatally shooting his parents, Mike and April Holton, and was emotionless after his arrest, Elmore County Sheriff Bill Franklin told the Associated Press on Tuesday.
The killings came after Holton apparently upset his parents Sunday when they discovered their son had thrown a party that included drugs and left the house a mess, according to the AP. His father, a former mayor of an Alabama town, had handcuffed his troublesome son in an attempt to discipline him, the AP reports.
