Somebody’s “baby” is headed to jail for a l-o-n-g time.
A 10-year-old boy is being held without bail after he was charged as an adult for killing a 90-year-old woman that his grandfather was a caretaker for. They say the boy held her down with a walking stick and beat her at his grandfather’s Pennsylvania home.

 Helen Novak died on Oct. 11.

Tristen Kurilla, the boy, admitted to pinning Novak down on her bed with a walking stick on her throat and punching her numerous times after she yelled at him, according to court papers.

“I killed that lady,” the boy said, the court paper states.

“Were you trying to kill her?” a trooper asked.

“No, I was only trying to hurt her,” the boy replied, according to the criminal complaint.
