    KS - Robert Hamlin, 43, shot to death, 10yo son charged, 24 April 2005

    When Carolyn Moore answered the light knock on her front door Sunday night, she was greeted by a boy wearing only burgundy underwear and holding a shotgun. "There stood this poor, scared half-naked little boy saying 'Help me, help me. Hide me. They're after me,'" Moore said. "I could see the fear in his eye. He said, 'They're going to get me and spank me hard.'"

    On Wednesday, Allen County authorities said the 10-year-old boy was charged with first-degree murder in the shotgun slaying of his father. Robert D. Hamlin , 43, was found dead Sunday night at his home near Humboldt.

    "The child said, 'I done something really bad,'" Moore said, recalling their conversation. "And I said, `What did you do?'

    "He said, 'I shot my dad.'"

    The boy, whose name was not released, was charged as a juvenile and could be held until age 23 if convicted. A closed juvenile court hearing was conducted in the county seat of Iola, eight miles north of Humboldt, and a judge ordered the case sealed.

    A lot more I'd say Sheromom.
    I wonder if it was an accident, if the boy was playing with the gun?
    Or if he intended to kill his Dad?
    So sad.
