Attorneys are taking the necessary steps to ensure that their clients will be trialed as juveniles.
Maine Teens Tried Mixing Prescription Pills Cocktail Before Strangling and Stabbing the Woman
Three teens from Maine, ages 13 to 15, are expected in court to answer for homicide charges after the authorities determined that the trio cooked up a plan to murder one of their mothers.
According to court documents, Kimberly Mironovas, the 47-year-old woman who was discovered dead in her Litchfield home, recently moved from Ashland, Massachusetts to Litchfield, Maine with her 15-year-old son.
Sage Lockhart, Kimberly’s former classmate, described Mironovas’ relationship with her teen soon as conflictual, the woman having issues reaching out to her recently expelled son. The man told the authorities that the boy was out of control and had a lot of anger issues, most of it directed towards her mother because they had to move from Massachusetts.
The police report suggests that on Saturday night, Mironovas’ 15-year-old son and two of his friends set in motion a plan to dispose of the teen’s mother.
Using the woman’s prescription pills, the three Maine teens prepared a deadly cocktail by crushing the pills and putting them in a glass of wine.
After the teens saw that the cocktail did not have the desired effect, they’ve overpowered Kimberly, knocked her to the ground, and strangled her. The coroner’s report suggests that the woman was also stabbed multiple times.
Kelly Sullivan, the attorney representing one of the teens, declared that his client doesn’t yet have a grasp of what has transpired. Sullivan added that he and the other attorneys would take the necessary steps to ensure that all suspects will be trialed as juveniles and not adults.
