5 year old girl may face murder charges

Many 5 year olds cannot read or write that well or even tie their own shoelace.

Recently in Kansas, America, a 5 year old girl is facing possibility of being charged for murder after she admitted that she dragged a crying toddler into a bathtub and held him under water until he stopped crying. The girl, who is not being identified because of her age, was left with 18-month-old Jermane Johnson Jr. on June 3 along with two other children and a 16-year-old girl who was supposed to be looking after them. The teenager had fallen asleep, police said.

"I've been in law enforcement for 20 years and it's the youngest suspect I can remember," police spokesman Darin Snapp said. "It's extremely rare."

Kansas City police are waiting for a medical examiner's report on how Jermane Johnson Jr., died, but have investigated the death as a homicide, spokesman Darin Snapp said.

Is it possible to charge a kindergarten kid for murder? At this age, she wouldn’t be aware of the consequences of her action. She may not even know whether her actions are right or wrong. She has just started her life half a decade ago and if prosecutor is going ahead to charge her for murder, her future is ruined.
