A ‘smart’ and ‘sane’ 16-year-old said he beat his parents to death over normal punishments, in court on Wednesday. Tenth-grader Vincent Parker murdered his mother Carol, 57, and father Wayne, 55, in their Norfolk, Virginia home just before Christmas last year.
The only-child skipped school to carry out the slayings, which weren’t spurned by any particular argument. I just remember getting mad,’ Parker told the court. ‘It’s all from my dad. All this stuff like my dad taking away my iPod and stuff.’
Parker pleaded guilty to two counts of second degree murder, after a psychological evaluation found him to be both sane and intelligent. He was charged as an adult and will be sentenced in September.
Parker carried out the act on December 19, 2013 and left school early while his dad was still at work.
He showed up at the family home on the 100 block of Bland Ave, and surprised his mother exiting the upstairs bathroom by dousing her in pepper spray.
