Teen Wanted To Be Serial Killer

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A prosecutor said South Florida teen Michael Hernandez killed a friend in a middle school bathroom as part of a plan to become a serial killer.

Miami-Dade Assistant State Attorney Carin Kahgan made that charge Thursday during opening statements at Hernandez's murder trial in Orlando. It was moved out of South Florida because of extensive pretrial publicity.

Kahgan said Hernandez methodically plotted to kill Jaime Gough. Both were eighth graders at the time. Hernandez is now 18.
Defense attorney Richard Rosenbaum argued that Hernandez is mentally ill. He added that evidence will show "this is a classic case of insanity."

If convicted, Hernandez faces up to life in prison. He and his lawyers have turned down plea deals offering 40 years in prison.
