12 Year Old Charged with Murder

With shackles clanging as he walked, a 12 year old Florida boy has become the youngest person in Jacksonville to be indicted on murder charges as an adult.
Cristian Fernandez pleaded not guilty today to beating his two year old brother to death.
His public defender has been trying to get the case heard in juvenile court, saying Fernandez is emotionally and psychology younger than 12.
The case has re-ignited the debate over whether children accused of heinous crimes can be rehabilitated.
Fernandez's next scheduled court appearance is July 21.
