We've heard of some half-assed reasons for killing people, but this is definitely in our top ten:
- Bail was denied today for a 19-year-old man accused of fatally shooting his grandfather as the older man left his home for an early-morning dialysis appointment earlier this month.
William D. Strickland, of the 400 block of East 95th Street, shot his grandfather six times in the back and used money stolen in the attack to buy tattoos, gym shoes and other items, Assistant State's Attorney Amanda Pillsbury said at the bond hearing.
The judge denied bail on charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery with a firearm and set his next court date for Monday.
On the brighter side, now he can get all the tattoos he wants in prison (if Anita can convict him that is)
