ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - There has been an unusual move by attorneys in the case of a Tucumcari teenager accused of murdering his family.
Tony Day is accused of killing his adoptive mother, Sue, and sister, Sherry, in November 2012 when he was 14 years old.
Now attorneys in the case are asking that a hearing be held to determine how well the teenager would respond to behavioral health treatment which would determine if he should be sentenced as a juvenile.
It's a determination that is usually made after trial, but in this case, the district attorney says it could help the parties resolve this case without a trial.
If he's sentenced as a juvenile, Day would be locked up until he turns 21.
