Michael Carneal was the then 15-year-old gunman who killed 3 and wounded 5 at Heath High School in Paducah, Kentucky in 1997. At his trial, he pleaded guilty but mentally ill to the murder charges and was sentenced to life in prison with eligibility for parole in 25 years.
Of course, he claimed he was bullied but again as most cowards do he shot and killed innocent bystanders, a group of students who were in a prayer circle.
Now it’s being argued in the Kentucky Supreme Court on whether or not Carneal was too mentally ill to plead guilty. Now through the wonders of modern junk psychology, Carneal is claiming that at the time of the shooting he was schizophrenic and was hearing voices.
The Kentucky Supreme court is expected to rule in three to six months.
