Riverside Boy, 10, Charged With Murdering His Neo-Nazi Father

RIVERSIDE (AP) — Southern California prosecutors have charged a 10-year-old boy with murdering his neo-Nazi father.

The boy was charged Wednesday in Riverside County juvenile court with a count of murder involving the use of a gun.

Authorities claim that he intentionally shot 32-year-old Jeff Hall at his Riverside home on Sunday. Authorities aren't talking about a motive.

The boy was handcuffed during Wednesday's brief court hearing, but his detention hearing was postponed to May 18. He didn't enter a plea and remains in juvenile custody.

The Associated Press isn't reporting his name because he's a minor.

Relatives who attended the hearing declined to comment.

Hall was a regional leader of the National Socialist Movement, which promotes white separatism. His other four children have been taken into protective custody.
