Maybe for manslaughter or negligent homicide. . . Actually hell I don't know; don't know the laws over there.
If he ended up continuing to beat the kid to his death here, it would be second degree murder (facing 15 to life); maybe voluntary manslaughter (7-20) if the prosecutor sucked or the defense attorney was a beast. . .
I'd get him off on voluntary manslaughter by showing that he was just so mad, and acted in the heat of passion. . . I'd make the jurors relate to how pissed off punk kids can make them. .
