COLVILLE — An 11-year-old boy sat in a Stevens County courtroom Thursday, playing with a rubber band as lawyers argued over whether a handgun and knife could be used as evidence in his trial for conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say the grade-schooler conspired to rape and murder a female classmate in February “because she was annoying.” Lech Radzimski attempted to cast the boy as anger-prone and keenly aware of his intentions when the alleged plot was uncovered and officials found weapons in another student’s possession at Fort Colville Elementary School on Feb. 7.
