Leila Fowler: Brother, 12, Charged With Murder

Murder charges have been filed against the 12-year-old boy accused of stabbing to death his eight-year-old sister at their home in northern California.

His lawyer Mark Reichel told KTVU-TV that he was charged with second degree murder and a special count for use of a dangerous weapon.

Leila Fowler was found on April 27 with knife wounds. Her brother was the only one at the Valley Springs home and initially told police he had scared off a long-haired intruder.
