10-Year-Old Boys Arrested For Plotting To Kill Their Classmate

Two fifth graders in Washington State admitted to plotting the murder of a girl in their class and intending to harm at least six other students, according to court documents released Wednesday.

The pair of Fort Colville Elementary School students — ages 10 and 11 — were arrested Feb. 7 after authorities found them with a knife, a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol and a full ammunition clip.

The would-be killers were thwarted after a fourth-grader notice one boy playing with a knife and alerted a school teacher.

According to court documents, the younger boy had been in a “short-term dating relationship” with the girl he allegedly planned to kill because “she’s rude and always made fun of me and my friends,” KTVB reports.

“Yes, I just want her dead,” he added.

According to CNN:

The boys’ plan called for the older to stab the girl off-campus with a 3.25-inch knife last week, and the younger boy would scare off any responders with a .45-caliber Remington 1911 semi-automatic handgun, court documents said.

Washington law states that children ages 8 to 12 are “presumed not to have the mental capacity to form the intent to commit crime,” according to KOMO. But prosecutors believe the boys had deliberate intentions.

“This was a plan. And it was a plan to kill,” Timothy Rasmussen, Stevens County prosecuting attorney, said Thursday, according to the LA Times.

The boys each face charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, tampering with a witness and conspiracy to possess a firearm.
