Milwaukee, Wisconsin – A 10-year-old boy is being charged as an adult after shooting and killing his mother. The child allegedly became frustrated with his mother after she refused to buy him a VR headset from Amazon.
Police say the boy was playing with the gun, on November 21, twirling it around his finger when it discharged, striking his mother, Quiana Mann, 44, by accident.
In a second interview with detectives, the report says the boy admitted to taking the gun the night before. He also said he grabbed the gun because he was mad at his mother for waking him up early and not buying him something from online. The boy said he tried to shoot at the wall to “scare her” but instead Mann was struck fatally in the head.
After shooting his mother and seeing her bleed out on the floor, the boy did something else unthinkable.
According to his older sister, the boy logged into Quiana’s Amazon account the following morning to buy the $500 Oculus Virtual Reality Headset – that his mother previously denied him.
According to TMJ4 News: The family paints a disturbing picture of his the boys behavioral temperament.
The complaint says the boy’s 26-year-old sister told detectives he has had “rage issues” all of his life and “five different imaginary people that talk to him. including two girls, an older woman, and two ‘mean’ men. …”
A therapist previously gave the boy a “concerning diagnosis” and the mother had placed cameras inside the home to watch him, according to the complaint. Two weeks prior to the woman’s murder, “someone had unplugged these cameras.”
The complaint says a family member also alleged that the boy would pick their puppy up by the tail and “swing the puppy around until it whined and howled in pain.” This occurred when the boy was allegedly four-years-old.
An aunt told detectives that the boy never cried or showed remorse following his mother’s death. The complaint alleges the 10-year-old told his aunt that he was “actually aiming the gun at his mother.” The day after his mother’s death, the aunt said he apologized for killing his mom and then asked if his Amazon package arrived.
In the state of Wisconsin, you must be 17-years-old to be charged as an adult.
However somehow, and despite the mental illness this boy is being charged as an adult with first-degree reckless homicide and faces a maximum of 60 years in prison if convicted. His bail is $50,000.
Currently his mother’s GoFundMe is at $13,000.
It appears that a majority of people on social media are NOT empathizing with the child…
