A judge today accepted a state request to send a year-old boy to a state juvenile penitentiary, making him the nation's youngest inmate at a high-security prison. The boy and a year-old boy, who was also sentenced to a juvenile penitentiary, were convicted of murder for dangling and dropping 5-year-old Eric Morse from a story building after the youngster refused to steal candy for them. The boys were 10 and 11 at the time of the killing. The case attracted widespread attention from child welfare and law-and-order advocates, and led to a national debate about how to deal with children who kill. In a hearing that began last Monday, the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services had requested that the boys be removed from the agency's detention center and transferred to the state's maximum-security juvenile prison in Joliet or to a medium-security unit elsewhere. In court, witnesses for the agency described the boys, whose names have not been made public because they are minors, as "unrepentant," "disruptive" and "dangerous to others. Lawyers for the boys maintained that the boys required intensive psychiatric and educational care, and that they be sent to a locked, privately run residential treatment center whose staff knew how to handle aggressive children.

In the eyes of the state, Dontez Tillman acted as an adult when he and a group of teenage friends beat a homeless man to death behind a Pontiac bar. But at critical moments leading to his conviction, the middle school student was treated as a child. He was 14 when police allowed his mother to sit beside and scold him during interrogation. He was 15 when she advised him — for the second time — to reject a plea deal that would have resulted in a reduced sentence. Now 17, Tillman still is not adult, but he holds a unique distinction.
