15-Year-Old Adrian Jerry Gonzalez, Suspect in Madyson Middleton Murder, to Be Tried as Adult, Faces Life Sentence

Here's my previous reporting on this horrible, horrible story, "Teen 'Lured' 8-Year-Old Santa Cruz Girl Into Apartment Before Killing Her, Dumping Body in Recycling Bin (VIDEO)," and "Santa Cruz Leftists Shocked — Shocked! — by Vicious Murder of Innocent 8-Year-Old Madyson Middleton."

There's no death penalty for minors, of course, otherwise prosecutors certainly would have sought his execution.

Here's the latest, at ABC 7 News San Francisco, "TEEN CHARGED AS ADULT FOR SANTA CRUZ GIRL'S DEATH."

The lovely little Madyson was bound with duct tape, raped, strangled and stabbed to death.

More at SFist, "15-Year-Old Suspect Named, Charged as Adult In Rape and Murder Of Maddy Middleton."

And at the Santa Cruz Sentinel, "Santa Cruz teen charged as adult in brutal homicide of 8-year-old."
