VALLEY SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA- The lawyer for a 12-year-old boy accused of stabbing to death his eight-year-old sister says the youngster may have lied about seeing an intruder fleeing his home but that doesn't make the boy a killer. Mark Reichel met with the boy in juvenile jail and says the boy may have made up a "macho" story about scaring away an intruder because he was scared. Leila Fowler was stabbed last month and her brother was the only one home. He told deputies he scared off a long-haired intruder and investigators went door-to-door searching for witnesses and evidence. The boy was arrested over the weekend by Calaveras County Deputies who won't say what evidence they have.
