Father Killed

10-year-old to remain in custody after father fatally shot

The attorney for a ten-year-old Texas boy being held in the fatal shooting of his father says he expects the boy will face a civil murder charge. Attorney Chris Tritico says that the boy was a victim of physical and sexual abuse by his father, 41-year-old physician Rick Lohstroh. The allegation is denied by the doctor's divorce attorney. Authorities say the case will stay in the juvenile system because of the boy's age. If allegations against the boy are found to be true in juvenile court, he could be held as a youth until age 18 and then could be imprisoned for another 40 years.
