Notorious teen killer back in court for probation violation

Local News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A judge let a notorious teen killer hear it after getting in trouble once again.

“You had other people speak on your behalf and I said, ‘Ok, I’ll release you,’ and you promptly disappear. Why should I believe anything you tell me today?” Judge Daniel Ramczyk said.

Mitchell Overhand spent two decades in prison for killing his parents in Albuquerque when he was just 16. He was then convicted of kidnapping a man last year, but was sentenced to just a year in prison and then probation when the victim spoke on Overhand’s behalf. He said he was only alive because Overhand convinced the others to let him go.

However, prosecutors say Overhand violated probation by testing positive for drugs. Overhand addressed the judge Tuesday.

“I know anything I say you’ll just call me a liar and talk about drug addicts and everything they do. I do have a problem with drugs and I’m trying to change it,” Overhand said.

Judge Daniel Ramcyzk decided to send Overhand to treatment for six months.
