Even though he confessed to police 16-year-old John Katehis has pleaded not guilty in the brutal slaying death of George Weber.
Katehis’ attorney claims that his client was being used by Weber and that the details of their relationship will emerge at a later time.
Katehis is being held without bond and no word yet if he’s being charged as an adult.
UPDATE: According to this article from WPIX in NY Katehis is stating that when Weber took out a knife to free his duct taped legs Katehis, being high on cocaine allegedly, freaked out and stabbed Weber twice. Except that doesn’t account for the other 48 stab wounds that Weber suffered.
