The boy, who can’t be named because he’s under the age of 18, is accused of murdering 16 year-old Charlotte Jolly in 2009, who was shot with a stolen rifle after an altercation in an alley.
To catch the teenager, local police asked the accused’s uncle to help them out. In exchange for dropping an outstanding drink-driving charge, he agreed to let police bug an Xbox 360 game and plant it in his house.
The uncle then invited the accused over and, after a marathon Guitar Hero session, the boy confessed to the shooting. He’s since been arrested and charged with second-degree murder.
