They should have kept the murder charge and sentenced him to LIFE. 10 years is much too short.

the question is what was really going on with the stepfather?? Perhaps there is more to the story. Stepfather's can be abusive, maybe the kid snapped after long term abuse

The boy was severely emotionally disturbed. He like so many other mentally ill children fall through the cracks due to lack of proper medical services and inpatient treatment. The family probably had little knowledge in dealing with his illness and from what I understand the boy was extrememly violent and the family had to deal with him being abusive and terroristic daily.

Sounds like they had so little knowledge about dealing with him they thought it was a good idea keeping a gun around.
