    I believe this is necessary to get him tried as an adult in the future. Per the article:

    It's the first step in proceedings that could see him charged as an adult and facing the possibility of life without parole if convicted.

    Why this route even has to be taken?

    He should be charged with the crime, regardless of the age.

    I'm not sure, I hope one of our attorneys might have some insight on this. I thought the same thing you did when I saw the headline as well.

    Whether a juvenile can be charged as an adult generally depends on their age (the younger they are the harder it is to charge them as an adult), their capacity to understand what they did, the severity of the offense, and their past history as a juvenile delinquent. The court will look at all of these factors and usually none of them will be determinative. The general presumption is that before people reach the age of majority they do not have the same capacity to form the wrongful intent to commit the crime as an adult does.

    He will be charged with the crime, regardless of the age. The issue is whether he will be charged as a juvenile or as an adult. Because he's so close to the age of majority and the crime was so evil and so clearly premeditated, I would be shocked if he wasn't eventually charged as an adult. If he was 11 or 12, he'd probably just be charged as a juvenile regardless of the offense.
