12 year-old boy kills 17 month-old cousin

By now you may have heard about the twelve year-old boy in Lauderhil, Florida who bludgeoned his 17 month-old cousin to death with a baseball bat. The boy lied to authorities initially but later confessed. He said she wouldn't stop crying and he couldn't hear his cartoons on television.

What happens next is up to the Broward County judicial system. Will he be tried as a juvenile or an adult as was Lionel Tate who murdered his six year-old playmate Tiffany Eunick in 1998? What makes children kill in such a violent manner? Were there signs of his of possible violence prior to this incident?

Sadly there are several other stories of children that kill. Here's a little of what's on Google.
