(CBS) RIVERSIDE, Calif. - Prosecutors in the case of a 10-year-old boy who allegedly shot and killed his Neo-Nazi father showed a video Jeff Hall made just hours before he died, reports CBS Los Angeles.
In the video, Hall is heard bragging that his young son knows how to use a weapon: "My son was able to operate a gen 1, night vision and then a scope at the age of 9."
The defense argued that a climate of hate, fueled with an insistence on gun use, fueled the boy, who is now 12, to kill his sleeping father. Hall was the California leader of the National Socialist Movement, the largest Neo-Nazi group in the country.
In an interview with "60 Minutes" back in June, Joanne Patterson -- Hall's mother -- said her grandson had always been violent.
She said he had been kicked out of school multiple times for attacking kids and a teacher. She wasn't surprised he could snap. "I always felt it could somehow happen. But I thought it would be when he was older."
The defense will also paint Jeff Hall as an abusive father.
But the prosecution says the motive for murder was a more complex one. They claim the boy killed his dad to keep him from splitting up with his step-mom.
The defense says the step-mom manipulated the boy to kill because she was upset he might leave her for another woman.
