Brandon McInerney’s trial begins

Judge Charles Campbell turned down the request from McInerney attorneys who were seeking more time so they can interview witnesses for the high-profile school shooting case.

McInerney, 16, is facing murder and other charges in connection with the February 2008 fatal shooting of classmate Larry King, 15, in a class at E.O. Green School in Oxnard.

Scott Wippert, McInerney’s attorney had already received a delay from May 14th in order to interview witnesses.

McInerney, who owned neo-Nazi and white supremacist materials, is accused of killing King because of King’s sexuality. Larry, a young gay boy (or perhaps, transgender), had been tormented for months by McInerney and his friends. When King finally responded making sexual taunts to McInerney, this appears to be motivation for McInerney to murder Larry King.

Which he did in February 2008, in class, with two shots to the back of the head.
