Mother of `vampire cult' leader pleads guilty -- Sondra , the mother of Rod Ferrell, who police say led the "vampire cult" pleaded guilty to trying to entice a teen-age boy into sex as an initiation rite.

Death sentence for cult leader reduced -- The death sentence of the cult leader, Rod Ferrell, now 20, condemned for fatally beating a Eustis couple, was reduced to life in prison by the state Supreme Court. Florida's high court ruled more than a year ago that the state can not execute killers who committed their crime before age 17. The July 1999 decision said allowing such a rare punishment would be cruel and unusual and therefore unconstitutional. Ferrell, was 16 when he killed.

Children Who Kill: Profiles of Pre-Teen and Teenage Killers by Carol Anne Davis Thirteen in-depth case studies of juvenile homicide committed by children between the ages of 10-17 focusing on societal and psychological factors. Why would two young boys abduct, torture and kill a toddler? What makes a teenage girl plot with her classmates to kill her own father? Traditionally, society is used to regarding children as harmless - but for some the age of innocence is shortlived, messy and ultimately murderous. Some of the most notorious killings of the 20th century were committed by children and it is not a new phenomenon. Mary Bell, Robert Thompson and Jon Venables are infamous for their crimes against other children, but many of the studies here will be less familiar to the reader and equally as offensive. Murdered by fire, poison, strangulation or gunshots, victims range from infants to old age pensioners. Carol Anne Davis sets out to explore this disturbing subject using in-depth case studies of 13 killers aged between 10-17. Exclusive interviews with experts offer an invaluable insight into the psychology behind these atrocities and a hard-hitting look at the role of society in an area too shocking to ignore.
