OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- A northeast Kansas boy accused of killing his father during a custody exchange with the man's ex-wife will remain in juvenile detention for now.
KSHB-TV reports a Johnson County judge refused Friday to release the 14-year-old to his mother pending his next court date on July 16th.
Prosecutors have charged the boy with first-degree premeditated murder in Tuesday's fatal shooting outside a Shawnee business.
Police say the teen was being delivered by his mother and stepfather for an arranged visit with his 46-year-old father when he pulled out a handgun and shot the man. Investigators say the boy surrendered the gun and waited while his stepfather called 911.
The boy's name has not been released because of his age.
