Texas Teenager Accused Of Killing 5-Year-Old Boy

FORT WORTH (June 27, 2013)--A 13-year-old accused of hitting a 5-year-old boy in the head repeatedly faces a capital murder charge, authorities said Thursday.

The teenager was arrested Thursday in the death of Sida Osman, whose body was found Wednesday after he was reported missing.

The teen's name was withheld because he's a juvenile.

Because he is younger than 14, he is not eligible to stand trial as an adult in the case, which will be handled in juvenile court.

Sida's body was found in the backyard of a vacant house about a block from the apartments where he lived.

Fort Worth police he and the teenager went to the yard together and said the teen was irritated with the younger boy.
