St. Johns boy headed to therapeutic group home

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- A St. Johns boy who pleaded guilty to negligent homicide is headed to a therapeutic group home for continued court-ordered treatment.

The boy who is now 13 years old will make the move from a Phoenix-area residential treatment center where he's been housed for nearly three years. He was brought back into court Wednesday in Apache County because of probation violations.

Defense attorney Ron Wood says the group home will provide the boy with more intensive treatment and a chance to interact with children closer to his age.

The group home will submit monthly progress reports to the court and attorneys in the case.

The boy was 8 when he fatally shot his father's friend in St. Johns. Prosecutors dropped a murder charge against him in his father's death.
