    Ugly: 2 teens charged in killings of Minn. mother, son

    Published: 6/18/08, 1:05 AM EDT

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Two teenagers were charged Tuesday in the killings of a woman who was stabbed and cut more than 100 times and her 10-year-old son, who had a television smashed over his head, prosecutors said.

    Stafon Edward Thompson, 17, and Brian Lee Flowers, 16, both of Minneapolis, were each charged as adults with first-degree murder in the deaths of Katricia Daniels, 36, and her son, Robert Shepard. If convicted, the teens face life in prison without the possibility of parole.

    According to criminal complaints, Thompson and Flowers blamed the killings on each other. They allegedly knew Daniels through her 15-year-old son, who lives in Chicago.

    That is almost too violent ...

    I hope they don't try an insanity defense! Sounds like a lot of rage in that killing.

    I'm so glad the 1 year old daughter is alive, but that girl will need watching - no way to know how that much violence will affect her. There has to have been a lot of screaming and other noise that the kid will have heard and felt.

    Apparently there is more story to tell, like why the two perps were there in the first place.

    Man, this is just sick. Glad the 1 year old is "OK", hope she is young enough to never remember this event.

    Those 2 boys better be careful who they befriend on the inside, once it is found out what they did I'm sure some thug with a 10 year old brother will instruct them in the jail house ways...

    I can relate to that feeling, a sense of foreboding like we are entering a real dark period in our history that persists even when I remind myself that these things may have always gone on just as often as they do today. We just have better communications so we hear about more of them.

    Why are animals like these are not promptly executed. Why do hard working honest people have to support them for the rest of their lives.

    I always wanta laugh when these thugs being so unrenorseful and kill with such violence once caught instead of owning up to what they did try to blame the other guy,the problem is if you are there and you participated you have the same level of guilt.I hope they get put in general population and they find out they killed a child ,they will find out what true justice is

    These scumbags do not deserve 'life'...in prison, or anywhere else!

    It's looking like the years of MN liberalism are starting to catch up with us, in a major way. We're starting to see more and more of these kinds of crimes here, where people are brutally murdered for trivial reasons.

    Highly reminiscent of the Dartmouth professor murders in Jan, 2001. Very good book describing the whole event and the lives of the teen killers - "Judgement Ridge." Definitely worth a read for insight into aberrant teen behavior and how the parents ignored it.
