Families Clash at Trial for Slain Teen | News | The Advocate

Lawrence King, 2008
Brandon McInerny's family was sobbing over the fact that their son, who shot Lawrence King in front of other classmates in 2008, was being tried for the shooting. King's family was tossed out of court for being upset because the killer's family apparently didn't care that their son had killed another student for being gay.

The mother of Brandon McInerney, the teen on trial for shooting King in a classroom in 2008, began sobbing, as did Boldrin's 13-year-old daughter.

The scene angered Greg King, Lawrence's father, causing him to storm out of the courtroom. When he returned, he gathered the King family to leave for the day. As the group walked past Boldrin's daughter and another family member, Lawrence's mother Dawn reportedly whispered an expletive to them.

The following day, Ventura County Superior Court Judge Charles Campbell ejected Dawn King from the courtroom for the rest of the trial due to the whispering. Soon after, Greg King shared his anger with reporters regarding the judge's ruling, and the tears shed in the courtroom the previous day.
Lawrence was shot in February 2008 at his school in Ventura County, California. McInerney, if convicted, could get 53 years to life for the senseless killing.
