Tamir Rice family asks prosecutors for aggravated-murder charges against officers, noting that statue does not require prior calculation or design where the victim is under the age of 13--just purpose to kill

Counsel for the family of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old boy shot by Cleveland police on November 22, 2014, have requested that the prosecutor seek a charge of aggravated murder. As explained in the linked letter to the prosecutor JSA-Letter-to-McGinty-Re-Aggravated-Murder-9-10-15.pdf, Ohio's aggravated-murder statute removes the element of "prior calculation and design" where the victim is under 13 years of age. All that is required is a purpose to kill.
