And when you consider that doctors have diagnosed with a mental disorder outbreaks of unjustified violence, it helps to understand why he has turned into a brutal killer.
In 1993, he committed a brutal murder of a little 4-year-old boy in a local Park. According to psychologists who examined the young thief on a defenceless child, he took out all his anger and resentment at the world. He could not punish the offenders, because they do not have sufficient physical strength, so all the aggression resulted in the who was much younger and weaker.
The court sentenced the juvenile offender to the maximum output provided for juveniles — 9 years to life imprisonment.
