Twelve-year old to be tried as adult for fatal stabbing

KENTWOOD, MICHIGAN- Neighbors at a mobile home park in Western Michigan thought kids were just being kids at the nearby playground area before realizing the little screams were filled with fear.

Now, a 9-year-old boy is dead and his suspected killer is just 12 years old.

Jamarion Lawhorn is being charged as an adult for the stabbing death of Conner Verkerke making him the youngest person ever charged with murder in Michigan.

Sounds like Jamarion won’t be playing with friends anytime soon.
