ST. LOUIS | A St. Louis judge is weighing whether a 15-year-old boy accused in the shooting death of a high school football player should be charged as an adult.
KSDK-TV reports that a decision was possible today.
The teenager is accused of gunning down 17-year-old Rahmel McNeil on Sept. 24 as the Sumner High School athlete was walking away from a fight with several other youths.
Prosecution as an adult would mean the 15-year-old could face life in prison without parole. He's too young for prosecutors to seek the death penalty.
