A 16-year-old admitted to killing his parents around Christmas last year, and according to reports his reason for murdering them was that he was tired of them taking away his iPod.

Vincent Parker, a 10th grade honor roll student at Norview High School in Virginia, appeared in court on Wednesday and stated that he had simply grown tired of their routine punishments,

Parker told police that he attacked his mother, Carol, as she exited a bathroom in their home, doused her with pepper spray, and then stabbed and beat her in the face repeatedly with baseball bat and a crowbar “until she stopped breathing.”

The boy then attacked his father, Wayne, with a crowbar upon his arrival into the home and stabbed him several times. Before Wayne Parker succumbed to his injuries he lived long enough to tell police what had taken place.

Vincent Parker was found to be sane and intelligent according to a psychiatric evaluation and is bring tried as an adult. He has pled guilty to two counts of second-degree murder.

Parker’s grandfather is shocked at his behavior that he calls uncharacteristic, and hopes he gets a lighter sentence with some counseling.

Sentencing is set to take place in September.
