Two fifth-graders at Fort Colville Elementary School in Colville allegedly masterminded a murder plot to kill a classmate because they found her to be “really annoying,” according to court documents that were released in the case last week.
The fifth-graders, currently locked up at Martin Hall Juvenile Detention Facility near Medical Lake, had their alleged murder plot foiled earlier this month when a fourth-grader at the school told school staff that he had witnessed one of the boy’s with a knife.
The boys face charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, tampering with a witness and conspiracy to possess a firearm.
The fourth grader has been hailed as a hero for helping to avert what could have been a potential tragedy.

Pistol and knife

A teacher searched the backpacks of the two 10 and 11-year-old students and discovered a knife and a .45 caliber Remington 1911 pistol, along with a clip of ammunition, according to court records.
According to court documents, one of the boys told a school employee that he and his friend were going to get the girl they had targeted away from school “and do her in.”
The court record said that one boy was going to stab the girl and the other youngster “was supposed to keep everyone away.”
The two boys admitted that there were other students that they wanted to kill and that they had been scheming for “awhile,” according to the court documents.
One of the youngsters conceded in the court document that they were “planning to kill…because she was really annoying.”
During questioning by Colville Police Department personnel, one of the students admitted they wanted to kill the female classmate because “she’s rude and always made fun of me and my friends.”

She was really annoying.

I thought what the girl was doing, was bullying! Hope they take that in concideration! Not saying that the boy's were right.

Twisted Kids of Stevens County

In reference to "Badgepacker's" comment telling us we should "consider" that the little girl victim may have "bullied" her potential murderers is SICK, and representative of the county that brought the world Israel Eyes and Chevy Kehoe! Perhaps we should consider that Charles Manson was bullied by a little girl too, sniff, sniff, a little murder will make it all okay now, there there, don't you feel better now? Jesus was bullied, geez, I wonder why he didn't slash those Pharisees to ribbons?
And for the Statesman Examiner to defame this girl in a headline, and thus divert the blame to the victim is sleezy and low class, and classically definitive of your rag's usual biased approach to "reporting". The headline should read: "We have a problem in our county, and we really need to examine the implications of our high rates of drug and alcohol use, the escalating promiscuity of our KIDS, our allowing, and condoning these kids to gang up on and fight innocent kids in our parks, and even in our so called Christian youth centers, from Colville to Kettle Falls and take a long, HARD look in the mirror of what we really are! Small wonder you've bred monsters like those boys. Reap what you sow.

You are on the right track,

You are on the right track, One Hiding Behind, but I don't fully agree with you.

I don't think the SE used that headline to shame the alleged victim, but to point out how trivial the boys motives were. You shouldn't be so sensitive, that's not a admired trait around here.

We DO have a HUGE problem in our county, but the causes you suggest are all more along the lines of symptoms.

All of NE Washington is a sacrifice zone for what passes for an economy these days. And what passes for an economy is run for the benefit of a very few, even 1% is too large a number. The anti-government response of most in our neck of the woods is precisely the wrong approach. Our government is the only way to counter the power of the privileged few. But instead we denigrate our self-government and vote at every level— our imbecilic County Commissioners, our obstructionist state legislators, and our careerist, pedophile sheltering (Jim West and Mark Foley, for starters), corporate whore of a congresswoman— for people who assist in our continued impoverishment and degradation.

This family is apparently an exemplar of local wisdom. These boys and their older siblings are now all incarcerated, their initial home-schooling, and resultant ignorance, no doubt, playing a large factor. The antecedents you name are only a small part of our rich history of socio- and psychopaths. We should take as our county motto Will Rogers' old saying, "It's not what you don't know that gets you, it's what you think you know that isn't so."

In a way, you have to admire these two young men. They may have found a way to escape this disaster zone even earlier than the most gifted student heading away to college, never to return (the fate of their target?). And once they turn 21, they won't even have any student debt to weight them down.
