    11-year-old boy convicted of killing 8-year-old girl
    [​IMG]
    WHITE PINE, Tenn. -- 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's grandmother told CBS affiliate WVLT he was found guilty of first degree murder in the October 4, 2015 death of his neighbor, McKayla Dyer.

    Jefferson County Juvenile Court judge Dennis "Will" Roach II sentenced the boy to state custody until he turns 19.

    In his order, Roach said the state should use all reasonable resources to determine why Benny shot the girl, and he should be treated and rehabilitated so this never happens again.

    "A child who commits first-degree murder cannot be willy-nilly turned loose into society," Roach wrote.

    The boy is currently in detention and being evaluated as to where he should be placed, said Rob Johnson, a spokesman for the Department of Children's Services.

    "Like any other child who comes into custody, he would need a thorough assessment and evaluation to determine the best placement," Johnson said. "At this time, it would likely be at an intensive treatment program at one of our private providers."

    The boy has five siblings -- three brothers and two sisters -- who have been placed with relatives and the state, Johnson said.

    Benny and eight-year-old McKayla lived in the same mobile home park in White Pine, Tennessee, about 40 miles outside of Knoxville.

    The judge said McKayla, her 11-year-old sister and another girl, also 11, were playing outside and talking to the boy while he was sitting at his bedroom window. He asked the sisters to go get their puppies, the judge's order said, and when they refused he went and got a 12-gauge shotgun and a BB gun and told the girls he had guns.

    According to the judge's description of the events, McKayla laughed at him and responded that the guns weren't real.

    The boy "then 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.

    The girl fell backward, "quickly lost consciousness, and was later confirmed dead," the judge wrote, adding that three witnesses saw McKayla within one minute after she was shot.

    "The mother of the child knelt on the ground and picked her up, placing her child in her arms as she passed away."

    Benny had been trained in firearm safety and had hunted with his father and grandfather, the judge noted.

    Tiller's grandmother declined an interview, but told WVLT she is working with the public defender to determine their next course of action.

    He'll go to a juvenille system I assume, then within a year or two of turning 18 they'll have to release him. So, just enough training to be a real menace to society.

    So this kid consciously made the decision to load a hand gun and kill an 8 year old girl... that's some cold blooded shit! I guarantee we'll be reading about this monster going postal in about 10 years.

    Hmmm. This is sad all around. The kid sounds profoundly troubled, and not in the OJ Simpson sort of way.

    Does anyone practice in Tennessee? This seems like a really troublesome case. How do you get the premeditation with an 11 year old--especially with facts like these?

    Honestly, this is the best option. You don't just kill the roach you see on the floor, you exterminate the entire house.

    A shot gun. He knew exactly what he was doing. Entitlement run amok. Don't show me your puppy and laugh when I threaten to kill you, then say hello to Jesus for me. This kind of thing can't be rehabbed. That kind of cold blooded killing is something that you can't fix.

    "He brought a pistol bb gun out first. Then he went back into the closet and got a shotgun and got it out and handed it to the girl (Mckayla's sister) and this is what Benny says: she took the gun and said 'this is cool' and pointed it at the sister and shot her," said Jack.

    This is where gun advocates make me insane, the grandparents/parents should be charged as well, anyone who has guns, that can be accessed by any other human being that does harm, SHOULD GO TO JAIL. You can own your guns, but NO ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET THEIR HANDS ON THEM
