Logan Robertson of Brunswick was arrested late Tuesday night and sent to the Medina County Jail on a murder charge, according to Brunswick police.
Robertson has been charged with murder, according to the police.
Under Roper v. Simmons, the United States Supreme Court ruled in 2005 that defendants under the age of 18 at the time of the murder were not subject to the death sentence.
The US Supreme Court ruled in Miller v. Alabama in 2012 that mandatory life sentences without the chance of release for juvenile offenders are unconstitutional.
The exact penalty for murder varies from state to state. However, all jurisdictions impose a sentence of imprisonment (sometimes for several years). In general, first-degree murder convictions carry penalties ranging from decades to life in prison (with or without the possibility of parole).
The penalty for second-degree murder is usually always less severe than the penalty for first-degree murder (less than life in prison). Aggravated first-degree murder is punished by the death penalty in some states. The death penalty is legal in about half of the states, as well as the federal government and the US military.
