11-Year-Old Murdered 4-Year-Old, He Reveals Why

In a disturbing story out of Florida, it turns out an 11-year-old boy who is facing charges for strangling his four-year-old step-brother to death had a history of violent behaviors including choking another child and a fascination with dead farm animals.

The boy's history of violence is described in an arrest warrant which lists a string of abuse from him towards other kids.
The latest victim, four-year-old Braydan Anthony Trahern, died in a hospital in Gainesville, Florida less than a day after being attacked by his step-brother.

The 11-year-old boy told the police said he was angry because his mom had told him they couldn't afford any presents or a party for his birthday.

The four-year-old Trahern was ruled to be the victim of a homicide by the local coroner, and the cause of death was strangulation.

The unnamed 11-year-old had been charged with aggravated battery resulting in great bodily harm, but he is now likely to be looking at murder charges.

According to police, the two boys lived with their moms, who are a couple, in a mobile home in Palatka, Florida.

The police report highlights that, according to his mom, when the 11-year-old was three or four years old, he set his crib on fire, causing a fire which destroyed the house they were living in. 

The boy was also known to dig up dead animals, cut off their legs and even carry the corpses around with him. The mom also noted that her son had major anger issues and is on medications. 

The 11-year-old has also been accused of sexually deviant behaviors both as a victim and as a perpetrator.

Of note, the boy attended a juvenile sexual treatment facility in Miami from December 2014 to June 2015, but when he came back home, he only behaved for the first few weeks then started acting out again.
