Teen sentenced to life for killing mother and son

By Washington Post editors

A teenager who killed a mother and son during a botched burglary in their Dale City home was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the chance of parole.

Xavier Pinckney, now 18, fatally shot James M. Smith, 19, a college student who had just returned home for a holiday break, and Smith’s mother, Jean, 39, in December 2008.

The Crime Scene blog has the story.
