Teens Accused of Plotting Murder Sent Home
Two teens accused of plotting to kill a fellow 9th grader were sent home by a Marion County Judge.
Christopher Rigiero and Paul Malnasi, both 16 years old appeared in court Wednesday.
They were granted house arrest until their next court appearance.
Their parents were by their sons' sides, happy to hear the news.
"We've discussed this with our attorney, we're not going to make any comment about anything, but we are very glad to have him home," Malnasi's father told TV20. His mother added "And I'll just say that the truth will be revealed."
Rigiero's parents refused to comment, but his attorney told us, they too were glad their son will be home.
Formal charges have not yet been declared by State Attorneys, nor whether they will be charged as adults.
While on house arrest, by the judge's orders, the accused teens are not allowed to have contact with each other, use cell phones or use the internet.
