After Amber Alert, Ky. Teen Charged in Killings

Associated Press

March 24, 2011

EDMONTON, Ky. — Police who had issued an Amber Alert for a 15-year-old, fearing he might be in danger after his guardians were found dead in their home, instead charged him with murder in their killings Wednesday.

State police say they found the teen driving his guardians’ car in south-central Kentucky on Tuesday night. With him was a 12-year-old girl who had been reported missing by her parents. The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles charged with crimes and police did not specify the relationship between the two.

The Amber Alert for both was issued after a relative found the bodies of 50-year-old Gary Holloway and 51-year-old Barbara Holloway at their home near Edmonton on Tuesday afternoon.

The Amber Alert described the Holloways’ car, and police say a firefighter alerted them after he saw it in Barren County. There was a short chase when police tried to pull the car over about 15 miles from where the couple was found, and the 15-year-old drove off the road. Police say he and the 12-year-old ran away but were caught quickly.

Police interviewed the two and said Wednesday morning that the boy had been charged with murder, fleeing and evading, wanton endangerment, criminal mischief, reckless driving and driving without a license. They have not said whether he will be charged as an adult. The girl was released to a parent.

State police say more charges could be pending.

    If not charged as an adult he will probably be back in society by the maximum old age of 21.

    Regardless what the attorneys can say the juvenile justice laws in place will see that this kid sits in treatment centers until he is 18 than he will be released right back into the public. Kids today are seeing this and think they can get away with anything because they are free from prosecution as an adult...something needs to change with the legal system in this country soon. Too many innocent people are being killed and there is no penalty to deter anyone from doing different.

    I can hear the defense lawyer now...he came from a broken home, he has problems, he was lashing out because of his mental issues. His guardians were probably the kind of people who showed him more love then he ever had, along with discipline. I'll bet they had restrictions on him and would not allow him to do what he wanted to do, like he was probably used to doing, so he showed them. There is obviously no rehabilitating this kid. Hang him high.

    Imagine that his father is in prison. What a family reunion it will be. He will be loved in prison.

    He needs to be tried as an adult for what he did, and, if convicted, punished as an adult.

    I can sit here and name a dozen reasons why this kid killed his parents, but only he knows the real reason, and he made that stupid choice, so yes, should be tried as an adult.
