According to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office, the 13-year-old says he talked his 14-year-old friend into trying to kill his mother with a sword because he had been taking "blue pills."
KHQ asked the Sheriff's Office if they knew what kind of drug could cause this type of behavior, and what he meant by "blue pills," however, there is still no answer to that question. The 13-year-old also said he blamed his thought process on his drug usage and said he would never do anything like that sober.
The incident started at the Whimsical Pig Apartments in the 13000 block of East Mission Avenue in Spokane Valley. According to court documents, the 13-year-old got into an argument with his mother and when she fell asleep later that night, he talked his friend into hitting her in the head with a sword.
Court documents go on to say that the 13-year-old planned to stab his mother with two kitchen knives after the 14-year-old hit her with the sword. However, she woke up and both boys ran out of the apartment.
From there, court documents say the two boys went to the home of the 14-year-old's stepfather and stole his Dodge Durango. The two drove erratically and crashed the Durango into a parked car and then a mobile home owned by Ray Clardy.
"It shook the house pretty good," Clardy said. "It was 2:00 a.m. in the morning, we already went to bed and everything. I thought somebody was caving in the front door, that's what I thought."
Clardy says by the time police showed up, the two boys were already gone. However, the Dodge Durango was still running and crashed against the mobile home.
This was not the end of the night though, the two teenagers then broke into a home on Boone Avenue. According to court documents, the boys took turns throwing hammers into walls and through windows. In total, the teenagers caused an estimated $2,000 in damages before running again.
Finally, the teenagers were tracked by a police K9 and were arrested in the 9400 block of East Sinto Avenue.
Both boys are charged with 2nd degree assault, 2nd degree taking a motor vehicle without permission, residential burglary, and 2nd degree malicious mischief. On top of those charges, the 14-year-old is also charged with hit and run unattended property.
Hearing dates have not yet been set for the teenagers. A mental health risk assessment will be done, at least, on the 13-year-old who is currently in juvenile detention. Right now, he is not allowed to have any contact with his mother.
