When he was just 10, police say he shot and killed his father, 42-year-old Bryon Hilburn. Court documents indicate the boy was upset because his father punished him.
The state thinks he is the youngest person ever to be charged with murder in New Mexico. And because the boy is 11 years old, he won't be locked up.
When officers interviewed the sister, they say she told them she was in the living room playing video games when she saw her brother with the gun, heared a gunshot, then saw their dad lying on the floor.
"They're basically trying to say he's crazy and he's not, he's a very intelligent, he is very loving, he's very caring. He worries about his mom a lot. I would like for people to quit voicing, putting mean things on the Internet, because it's just not fair," Albear said. "They don't know who he is, they don't know what he's been through, they don't know what my family has been through. And I think it's wrong and I think my son deserves justice."
The boy's mother spoke for the first time at a court in Los Lunas, saying her son has been through a lot of abuse and doesn't deserve to be attacked on the Internet.
