LENAWEE, Mich. (WTOL) - Marshall Sosby was arraigned in court Wednesday, September 24. Police say he shows no remorse over being charged with the murder of his parents.
Police also say Sosby may have been planning the murders for some time over punishments he received. The final act that set the plan into motion may have been getting his cell phone taken away.
Records show it was Marshall who called 911 and told operators his mother shot his father because of abuse. There were three siblings in the home -- ages 14, 13 and 3 --at the time of the killings. A teenage sister told police she saw Marshall kill their parents.
When asked in court if he wanted to be provided an attorney, he replied, "Will that help?"
