    MO - Girl, 12, confessed to strangling 9yo sister, 22 Dec 2004

    A 12-year-old girl is accused of killing her 9-year-old sister in a dispute over a hamburger. The girl was charged with murder under the juvenile code, and a Family Court judge will decide if she should be tried as an adult, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Tuesday. The sisters were home alone on Dec. 22 when the older girl reported finding her sister lifeless on the floor.

    Authorities could find no evidence of violence, and Medical Examiner Michael Graham ruled the cause of death undetermined.
    But police received a phone call from a social worker Feb. 1 saying the older sister was in a hospital psychiatric unit suffering visions and nightmares.

    Police said she told staff at the hospital that she strangled her sister during a quarrel over a hamburger. On Monday, Graham ruled the case a homicide and said the victim had injuries on her neck that were consistent with strangulation.

    You know what I don't understand? First the medical examiner can't determine the cause of death, and then after he hears about the girl's visions and nightmares, all of a sudden he sees injuries on the sister's neck that are consistant with strangulation.

    That just bothers me for some reason.
