Teen stabbing suspect charged with rape

"A 13-year-old charged as an adult in connection with the stabbing of his mother and stepfather has now been charged with statutory rape.

The alleged victim is a girl younger than 10 who is acquainted with Noah Kaid Burge but is not a blood relative, said police Sgt. Adam Cooper.

The rape reportedly occurred Monday, the day before the stabbing. The incidents aren’t directly related and police learned of the alleged rape while investigating the assaults on Burge’s parents, Cooper said......"

and

"....Cooper did not release details on a possible motive for the stabbing but said he believed Burge’s parents remained hospitalized."

Note that there are some very disturbing comments under both articles--63 and counting under the second article. A poster says they know the child and she is only 7.

comment section here about the third one down "randall E****" claims he is best friends with this boy. Also claims the parents were beating him, claims to have seen the scars .....

This is truly sad, something caused this boy to go into a rage ....

There's a newer comment that refutes that. Who knows at this point? Something terrible is going on. If the child victim is who the commenters say she is, she needs her family right now.

I know Missizzy about the comments that refute that , they seem to be other family members posting. Sometimes the nicest people you know beat there children behind closed doors and no one ever finds out ... not saying that this is the case here but something is amiss....

Other comments are stating that the rape charge has been dropped, something about an ex-wife of stepdad throwing out the claim and that the girl was checked and showed nothing had happened to her, says ex wife has thrown it out before because she wants custody of the girl....
I hope the little girl is ok and that she was not raped, and that the parents recover fully ....

This boy needs help, it will come out if he was being abused.....

Mysticrose--Do you have a link to any news report that the rape charge has been dropped as I don't see that. Yes, I've read all the comments and they are ugly.

I wonder why they are officially calling this Statutory Rape? I just did some research into MS law, and it sounds like that term is no longer used. Didn't that term typically mean that force was not used but that the person was not old enough to consent? How could that be applicable to a child under 10?

I found this:

http://www.sunherald.com/2010/07/21/2351031/teen-charged-with-stabbing-parents.html#ixzz0vClQv4vz

"....The alleged rape reportedly occurred a day earlier [than the stabbings]..."

This makes me think that the boy was caught or confronted.

I saw it in the comments section too. I noticed that one must now register with the Biloxi Sun-Herald to read the article as it is over a week old. I registered and found no new info. I seriously doubt (but could be wrong) that they would keep a rape charge if the evidence did not exist. In fact, I have a hard time believing that they would have made that charge and increased Burge's bail if they didn't have a positive result from an exam or a disclosure from a child's interview.

Psychological evaluation ordered by the court

GULFPORT - A court-ordered psychological evaluation has been scheduled for a 13-year old boy that allegedly raped his 7-year old stepsister and then stabbed his mother and stepfather. Noah Kaid Burge has been in the custody of the Harrison County jail since he was arrested for the brutal attacks on July 20.

Authorities said the chain of events unfolded on Monday, July 19 at the family's residence on Banebury Cove in Gulfport.

snip

Necaise said he could not comment on the details of the sexual assault, but authorities did confirm Burge has been charged with the statutory rape of the 7-year old.

The next day, on July 20, around 10 p.m., Gulfport police were called to the home and found Burge's parents suffering multiple stab wounds.

They identified Burge as their attacker.

"The mother had been stabbed once in the back of the neck," Necaise said. "And the stepfather had several cuts where he was attempting to get the knife away from the young man."

I'm sorry-statutory rape? I didnt really read that correctly did I? This is forcible rape of a child and incest...

Don't think it's incest as they are not blood relatives. Steps.

I don't get the statutory rape charge either. To me that makes it sound as if she went along with it, and the only thing that makes it rape is the age. She's not old enough to consent.

That's ridiculous! A 7yo cannot consent! Besides, due to the ages, the age difference should also qualify this as RAPE!

They need to get a new DA!

WTF?!?! Maybe I am mistaken but I thought "Statutory Rape" described sex with a minor who consented but was not legally of the age where consent is allowable - like in the instance where a 15 year old girl has sex with her 18 year old boyfriend.

This child is 7?!?

This one has me shaking my head. Do I misunderstand what "statutory rape" is within the criminal legal system?!?

Crazy charge....he should have been charged with sexual assault, and if there was any force at all...it should have been charged as "aggravated" sexual assault!

I believe there is another definition for statutory rape, than the one most commonly thought of. I know it has been posted on other threads, just can't think off-hand exactly what it said.

Belinda--I started the thread as this came up in some research I was doing on another case. I'm pleased there's been an update but still not very much new info. I check everyday. I'm very intrigued as to what's going on. I'm very pleased to see an update on the parents' condition. None of the news reports had stated how seriously they had been hurt.

I researched the MS law concerning statutory rape and the charges make no sense. The only thing at all I can think of is that LE determined that this was consensual sexual exploration (stretching here) and that neither had the right to consent. The age difference makes that unlikely, IMO. I think the citizens of Gulfport deserve more information on this case.

There's a good number of comments in the Biloxi Sun-Herald paper. Many people are surprised and some aren't.
