Teen Metal Fan Accused of Murdering Radio Journalist

(Blabbermouth) The 16-year-old boy arrested in the fatal stabbing of the radio journalist George Weber was a death/black metal fan who used MySpace to profess his love for sex, violence, knives and Satanism, according to Gawker.com. He was ordered held without bail late Wednesday on charges of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Officials said the teenager, John Katehis (pictured below), of East Elmhurst, Queens, New York apparently answered a Craigslist ad in which Weber, 47, sought a sexual partner, according to The New York Times. The police believed Weber planned to pay Katehis for sex. The police commissioner, Raymond W. Kelly, said that the two had arranged to meet on Wednesday, March 18 in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, but rescheduled the meeting for Friday evening.

Katehis's MySpace page, which was taken down Wednesday, said he enjoyed "drinking, bike riding, hanging out, roof hopping, hanging off trains," and "extreme violence (chaos, anarchy, etc ...) video games, violent movies and listening to my iPod." - more on this story
