Jury convicts teen of murder, rejects 'Zoloft defense'
A South Carolina jury has convicted a 15-year-old boy of murder for killing his grandparents when he was 12 years old.
The lawyers for Christopher Pittman had blamed his actions on his use of the anti-depressant Zoloft. They said the drug left him unable to know right from wrong. But prosecutors said that was a smokescreen. They said he knew exactly what he was doing when he shot his grandparents, set fire to their house, and drove off in their car.
