A 16-year-old in Massachusetts has been found guilty of raping and murdering his high school teacher.
Philip Chism was just 14 years old when he was charged and tried as an adult. Prosecutors say he attacked Colleen Ritzer in a school bathroom and then stabbed her with a box cutter before moving her to the woods. (Video via WHDH)
Chism's attorneys always admitted he killed Ritzer but argued he suffered a psychotic episode and wasn't responsible for his actions.
