ST. FRANCISVILLE, LA (WAFB) - A 16-year-old accused of stabbing an 8-year-old boy to death last week was indicted for first-degree murder by a grand jury Thursday. The Bill of Indictment states Reese allegedly committed the offense of 1st degree murder, in that he killed a human being when he had specific intent to kill or inflict great bodily harm upon a victim who is under the age of twelve years.
"I don't think there's going to be an issue of responsibility. I think there will be an issue of what is his competency and his understanding of his mental status," said Reese's attorney, Lewis Unglesby.
Trevor Reese will not face the possibility of the death penalty because of his age.
Reese was not in court for the hearing.
If convicted, he will receive an automatic life sentence.
His arraignment is scheduled for June 24.
The teen was arrested by the West Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office last Thursday and has been held without bond since then.
Reese is accused of killing Jackson Attuso, 8, of Clinton in The Bluffs subdivision in West Feliciana Parish on June 10.
According to authorities, Reese stabbed Attuso to death while the young boy was riding his bike through the woods with his mother.
He was expected to make a court appearance Wednesday morning for a bond hearing, but a move by his attorney changed that plan.
Unglesby filed paperwork late Tuesday afternoon requesting no bond be set.
A judge has ruled Reese can be tried as an adult in the case.
