Milwaukee teen will undergo psych tests in milk murder case
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The 14-year-old accused of fatally stabbing her step-grandfather after he poured her milk down the drain will be subject to a series of neurological brain tests.
The girl, who we are not identifying because of her age, was initially charged with first-degree reckless homicide, which carries a maximum of 60 years in prison. However, last month, prosecutors raised the charge to first-degree intentional homicide, which carries a life in prison sentence.
The teen's attorneys told a judge Friday they wanted their client to receive a psychological evaluation. The judge agreed. The defense says it may ask for further exams depending on the outcome.
The case returns to the courtroom on December 4.
