OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - An Oakland teenager has pleaded guilty to murdering his adoptive parents after he had an argument with his mother about being suspended from school.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that 16-year-old Moses Kamin is expected to be sentenced next month to 25 years to life in prison.
Authorities say Kamin was 15 when he strangled his parents in January at their Oakland home. The teen told police he killed them after he was suspended from his charter school for using marijuana.
Kamin pleaded guilty to first-degree murder for killing 55-year-old Robert Kamin and second-degree murder for killing 50-year-old Susan Poff. He was charged as an adult.
Kamin's attorney says the teen has a psychological disorder as a result of childhood trauma while living with his birth mother.
