Where are they now?

Juveniles — one of them 12 years old — have accounted for some of the more disturb- ing homicides in New Mexico in the past three decades.

Here’s a look at a some of the most notorious cases, how those cases were handled and what happened once the young offender returned to society. John Hovey: He was 16 in 1984 when he repeatedly shot his par-

ents as they

slept in their

Albuquer-

que home. His mother had warned months before that he was going to kill her. He was

sentenced as an adult to two life terms, plus 16½

years, then received an addi- tional life sentence plus 16½ years in 2000 for stabbing a paraplegic inmate 230 times. Jason Kirkman: He was

15 in 1986 when he killed

his father with a bow and arrow, mutilated his face and drew satanic sym- bols near his body in Albu- querque. He was sentenced as an adult,

under an agreement with his attorney,

to 12 years. He has been free since 1992, with no further serious criminal charges noted. Mitchell Overhand: He was 16 in 1988 when he shot his parents,

finished off his mother with a ham- mer to the head, then buried them in the back- yard of their Paradise Hills home
