Juvenile Justice: 12-Year-Old Charged as an Adult for Murdering His Pregnant Stepmother

- By Bossip Staff

BOSSIP has learned that 12-year-old Jordan Brown will be charged as an adult for murdering his father’s pregnant fiancée and unborn child last year:

Jordan Brown was only 11 years old when Pennsylvania prosecutors say he put a bullet in the head of his father’s pregnant fiancée and shot her dead. The unborn child died also. Now a court will decide if Brown at 12-years-old will become one of the country’s youngest murder defendants to be tried as an adult. The next hearing is March 12.

Authorities say he shot 26-year-old Kenzie Marie Houk in their western Pennsylvania farmhouse last February. A defense psychologist testified Friday that an adolescent’s brain does not control impulses in a “mature way.” Lawrence County Judge Dominick Motto continued the rest of the hearing to allow the prosecution’s psychologist to examine Brown. That doctor will testify when the hearing resumes.

Brown’s family is standing behind him. According to CNN, they want the case tried in juvenile court and believe the “all-American boy” who loves to hunt with his father Chris Brown and play football, is innocent.

If Brown is tried and convicted as an adult, he faces life in prison. If convicted in juvenile court, he can only remain in detention until he is 21.

    I remember this story, and I feel that the stepmother and father are guilty in this. Now, as I remember it…the little boy expressed to his father that he did not like the stepmother (I have a kid so I know how that can be), the father never talked to the little boy to find out what was wrong or why he didn’t like the stepmother. After the little boy expressed his feelings, the father and stepmother puchased him the shotgun that he used to kill the stepmother.

    He is a kid, but also a killer. I don’t know how I should feel about this case. Another life lost.

  • Cookie B.

    I feel for the victim and the boy. Now, at ages 10 to 18, I knew better than to kill someone. This, is not sane behavior at all. I want to know why the young man killed his step-mother. Not to say, there should be an excuse but, what was thye serverity behind the murder? We have young black kids doing this stuff to each other but they will try them as adults and say they are thugs, instead of trying to get them help. This young man will get off and probably do this type of crime to someone else. We need to stop making excuses for these damn crazy @$$ children! They are literally “getting a way with murder”!

    His lil bad azz was probably jealous of the unborn baby. Charge him as an adult. Everyone knows serial killers start killing as kids.

  • Alrighty Then... (Barbara Jordan)
