He saw an episode in which a boy killed his abusive father and didn't get in any trouble; as such, he thought that he could off his dad and get away with it.

The boy was only 10 when he killed his father and is being tried as a juvenile.

His name has not been released because of his age; his young sister lied at first about it saying that their stepmom told him to do it, later changing her story.

The young boy says he killed his father, described in various news reports as a a neo-Nazi, to stop domestic abuse that was going on in their home.

He is undergoing mental health evaluations.

At the young age of 10, officials say it's unclear if he knew what he was doing when he shot his dad, and what the best course of action is going forward.
