RISING SUN, Ind. — An Indiana teenager accused of strangling his 10-year-old brother and dumping his body in a park has pleaded not guilty to murder.
Seventeen-year-old Andrew Conley showed no emotion during Friday's court appearance in Ohio Circuit Court in Rising Sun, the teen's hometown along the Ohio River about 90 miles southeast of Indianapolis.
His parents were at a viewing for his brother Conner Conley's body and did not attend the hearing.
Prosecutors say Conley confessed to police that he intentionally strangled his brother while they were wrestling at the family home on Sunday. They say Andrew Conley told investigators he had dreamed of killing someone since he was in eighth grade.
If convicted of murder, Conley could be sentenced to up to 65 years in prison.
he had dreamed of killing someone since he was in eighth grade Is it pssible that kids are born that bad?
For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the son of man be. Mathew 24:27
Some people are born with a rotten heart.
It never gets any better, it just continues rotting until the day that someone is killed.
Sometimes, you can see it in their eyes.

This is going on local to me. I know one of the Indiana detectives that is handling this case; the details are pretty disturbing, and the brother is very matter of fact about it. He talks about it as if he was talking about taking a walk down the street or tying his shoes... no big deal.
"Just blame Sixto"
Very very disturbing. Very sick. Like the dad shooting his son last week.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
My view on people has drastically changed over the last year. I know believe people are inherently broken or at least capable of darn near anything. Luckily there are lots of us out there that were just brought up well enough to now know better. The only hope for the world is to raise our kids the same. I can't even imagine what this will do to his parents.
"Don't Tread on Me"
From reading the "Dreamed about it and showing NO remorse" I'd say PUT HIM AWAY FOR THE 65 YEARS!
That is SO TRAGIC for someone to be that way - especially at such a young age.
God help us all...
For God, Family and Country!

If this character gets out of prison before age 60, he'll almost certainly kill again. He's 'serial-killer' material.

Seems the general concensus here is that the 17 y.o. is completely at fault.... what about the history here? How did the parents not pick up on signs that this juvenile was having issues? There had to be previous signs of problems if this guy is talking so matter-of-fact about this. Showing no remorse means that he has no care for his parents either.
Something more was wrong here.
Now don't get me wrong, the 17 y.o. deserves the penalty he is dealt by all means for killing his brother, but there are underlying issues here. He didn't just snap at that moment, and he admitted that he had been thinking about killing someone since the 8th grade. PARENTS.... TALK TO YOUR KIDS! KNOW YOUR KIDS!

If it were just that easy...
I commend to all parents of teens the book "Judgement Ridge", the story of two teens who brutally murdered the two Dartmouth professors early in 2001. The two killers were always just at the edge of popularity but never quite part of things in their school, and never quite strange enough to be identified as potential killers. The whole story is quite chilling, and although it's written in reportage style, there's a strong message there for parents and school staff.
