15-Year-Old Boy Kills Girlfriend for Having an Abortion

axeYou may not like abortion, but would you murder someone over it? Nattalie Muir, a 21-year-old teacher, was brutally beaten then stabbed to death by her 15-year-old former lover, who also happened to be her student. The boy (whose name hasn't been released because of legal reasons) and his two friends, George Stewart and Emma Merrilees, went out hunting for Nattalie in a drug- and alcohol-induced state, armed with a spade, an axe, and a six-inch knife.

They found her walking on the side of the road with her boyfriend, Thomas Thyne. They chased Thyne off and proceeded to murder Nattalie. Her last word was "Paige," her 3-year-old daughter.

Apparently, the 15-year-old boy had sworn revenge on Nattalie after she decided to terminate her pregnancy by him. He harassed her with phone calls and even told her boyfriend he was "coming to get him." He received six years in jail for his heinous crime, while Stewart, 34, received eight, and Merrilees, 20, received life for stabbing Muir to death.

Obviously, this boy was not of a sound mental state, but it seems kind of ironic that he took another person's life over an abortion. I mean, isn't that the whole thing with pro-lifers? They feel that those who have had abortions "took another's life"?

And why did this kid want Muir to keep the baby so badly anyway? Did he see himself fit to be the father of a child? Since when do 15-year-old boys even want to be fathers? There clearly were other motivating factors than "his unborn child" that led him to commit this crime. Like the fact that he's completely and totally mentally insane.

It really is a shame that all he got was six years. I get that he's a minor, but it seems like an awfully short time for beating someone, murdering them, and leaving a 3-year-old without her mother. He should have gotten life.

What do you think should happen to this 15-year-old boy?

 My first thought is why the hell  are 34 year old MEN and 20 year old WOMEN hanging out with 15 year old kids.

This 15 year old should be locked up for life.

 This is my first thought, too.  And why the hell was the teacher screwing him?  This is a group of adults with very poor judgement.

The kid should have gotten a stiffer sentence.  He was obviously there and an active presence.

He should have been tried as an adult, he would have gotten longer that 6 years. Sad.

I'm wondering about her boyfriend. What kind of man is he to run off while his girlfriend is being assaulted??
