Anyone caught doing so could face
a fine of 250- to 25- hundred bucks and

Christopher Sterling Jamison was
in court yesterday, as attorneys
considered who should evaluate his
mental state- -both now and at the time
of the crime last November.

County detectives say Jamison
admitted he took the biggest knife he
could find and stabbed the woman who
raised him... first in the back, then
15 times in the chest.

He couldn't exactly explain why,
except to say he'd "kind of hated her"
his whole life.

Jamison's lawyer says the boy
had been under the care and treatment

of a psychologist for depression for
four months before the murder.

She wants to know whether he's
mentally ill.

The 6-foot tall 14-year old
remains in custody with trial SCHEDULED
