In Wisconsin, a 10-year-old boy accused of murdering his mother over a virtual reality headset appears in court virtually.

A 10-year-old boy has been charged with shooting and killing his own mother over a virtual reality headset.

Prosecutors claim the boy pulled the trigger in the basement of his family’s home near 87th and Magnolia in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, last month.

The disturbing details are detailed in the criminal complaint, which charges the boy as an adult with reckless homicide, according to WISN.

According to police, the boy told them he was upset because his mother, Quiana Mann, woke him up early on November 21 and refused to buy him a virtual reality headset from Amazon.

The boy appeared in court virtually Thursday from a juvenile detention facility in Milwaukee, where the judge obscured his face.

The boy’s father appeared on the Zoom call but made no comment during the brief virtual hearing.

Prosecutors stated that an amended complaint will be filed, but provided no further details.

The boy’s bail was previously set at $50,000 by the judge, but his public defender has requested that it be reduced.
