An 11-year-old boy in Tennessee has been found guilty of murdering an eight-year-old girl after she and her sister refused to let him see their puppies, a judge said. Benny Tiller was found guilty of first degree murder in the October 4, 2015 death of his neighbor, McKayla Dyer at a mobile home park in White Pine. Jefferson County Juvenile Court judge Dennis "Will" Roach II sentenced the boy to state custody until he turns 19. Refused his request to see the puppies, Tiller "made certain the gun was loaded, cocked the hammer on the gun and shot the victim just above the heart at a downward trajectory," the judge wrote in a description of the crime. read more

And he's lately been going after her for supporting President Barack Obama's Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. Earlier this week, he said she's perhaps progressive on "some days."

AUSTIN, Tex. -- A grand jury indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two felony counts on Friday, charging that he abused his power last year when he tried to pressure the district attorney here, a Democrat, to step down by threatening to cut off state financing to her office.

The indictment left Mr. Perry, a Republican, the first Texas governor in nearly 100 years to face criminal charges and presented a major roadblock to his presidential ambitions at the very time that he had been showing signs of making a comeback.
