The 14-year-old Carosn boy charged with murdering his father, an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agent, was due in court Monday morning. Prosecutors want to try him as an adult.

Investigators say the boy was in the backyard of his father's house Wednesday night when he fired a shot through the window. The bullet hit 42-year-old Myron Chisem in the head, killing him.

There is still no word on a motive, but investigators say the boy did use his father's gun.
