    From the article it says: family and friends said the girl is Darlene Nevil's daughter and the boy is the daughter's boyfriend.

    So sad, I can't imagine what would make a kid do this.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    Capital murder, in adult cases, can bring the death penalty.

    However, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that juvenile defendants can't be executed if they were under 18 at the time of their crimes.

    Hill also explained that juveniles can't be certified to be tried as adults until they reach age 14.

    The maximum capital murder penalty for children is 40 years incarceration with the Texas Youth Commission -- the state’s juvenile corrections agency.

    But, Hill added, the TYC can recommend parole for someone, if they respond well to "rehabilitative efforts."

    "Minimum length of stay is three years on murder," Hill said, "but on capital murder, the minimum length of stay is 10 years.

    "After age 19, TYC would lose the jurisdiction and the person would go into the adult system."

    At that point, they could enter a regular prison or be released on parole, but as an adult, Hill said.

    Sad and disgusting. 12 year old girls should be having sleep overs and going to movies with other 12 year old girls. Not having 13 year old boyfriends!

    On Darlene's facebook page, she states: "I have a wonderful daughter that I just love to death". That just gave me shivers.

    So sad.
    Devastating. Looking at the summer vacation photographs. All too sad.

    Also, I noticed mom named DD as a friend, but DD had only mom as her friend. This poor woman was probably trying to keep her beloved child safe and straight. How does this happen?

    Guardian assigned for 12-year-old Garland girl accused of murdering her mother, stepfather

    Generally speaking, an ad litem is an attorney appointed in absence of a parent or at the request of the lead attorney. The girl lived with her father in Ohio prior to joining the Nevils in Garland last summer, but no family members were present in the 304th District courtroom of the Henry Wade Juvenile Detention Center on Thursday

    Sad in a way, that there was nobody for this girl. A bit o/t, but reading stories like this makes me think I'm glad my partner and I don't have any kids. We got together when I was 38 and he was 55 and though we wanted to at the beginning of our relationship, we decided against it. In reading stories like this I'm glad we didn't have kids. You want to do the best by them, but it's not certain they see it that way.

    From February 2011:

    http://www.dallasnews.com/news/commu...stepfather.ece

    A 13-year-old Garland boy accused with his girlfriend of killing her mother and stepfather reached a plea agreement with Dallas County prosecutors this week...

    He was discharged to the Texas Youth Commission, to spend six weeks in an evaluation facility... At age 19, he will be transferred into the adult system.
    From March 2011:

    http://www.dallasnews.com/news/commu...stepfather.ece

    The girl was sentenced to 20 years in a plea agreement Monday, half of the maximum that she was facing in the juvenile system. Itís also less than the 28 years handed down earlier this year to her 13-year-old boyfriend and accomplice. By law, she will serve at least 10 years...

    The girl will be in custody of the Texas Youth Commission until a hearing sometime between her 18th and 19th birthdays. It will then be determined whether to send her into the adult system for the remainder of her term.

    The teenager who killed his girlfriend’s parents in 2010 in Garland will face parole — rather than prison — when he turns 19 next month.

    He will go to a halfway house for at least six months and remain on parole for the rest of 28-year his sentence.

    Adding to the family’s agony is the fact that Alan’s stepdaughter — convicted five years ago of killing him — could also soon be released.
    She faces her own hearing later this year.
