14-year-old charged with murder

A 14-year-old boy accused of mrdering his elderly neighbour will be the first juvenile tried for murder in Slovakia, the Pravda daily reported on August 20.

The boy, identified as Jan, is charged with killing 87-year-old Mária Humajová last week.

Under the new Penal Code that came into effect in January 2006, 14-year-old offenders can be sentenced as adults. If the court finds Jan guilty, he could be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison.
