DAMASCUS TOWNSHIP, Penn.– A Pennsylvania community is in shock after police say a 10-year-old boy confessed to beating a 90-year-old woman to death.
WNEP reports Tristen Kurilla of Damascas was visiting his grandfather at his home last Saturday.
The boy told police that 90-year-old Helen Novak yelled at him during a dispute.
That’s when Kurilla allegedly put a cane to her throat and reportedly punched her in the throat.
According to WNEP, the boy’s grandfather is the caretaker for Novak.
Kurilla will be charged as an adult in her death, and is being held in jail without bond.
