Teen Not Guilty Of Parents’ Deaths

A jury found a teenager not guilty by reason of insanity in the slaying of his parents.

Jeffrey Howorth, 17, will remain hospitalized until doctors determine he poses no threat to himself or others.

Howorth shot his father, George, 46, five times, then pumped nine bullets into his mother, Susan, 48, as he chased her around their house on March 2.
