This is just horrible.
Back in August, Raistlin Arthur Martin allegedly hacked his grandfather to death using a hatchet just minutes after revealing his horrific plot online.
The 15-year-old brutally killed Joseph Emmett Naulty, according to an affidavit recently obtained by PEOPLE.
The court docs show the North Carolina teen had been chatting on the Canadian app Kik before the murder — under the handle EtherealSkull — telling a fellow user that he planned to kill his grandfather, even sharing photos of the gloves he wore and the hatchet he was going to use to commit the crime.
Raistlin also reportedly explained on the app that he'd get a lighter sentence because he's a minor.
When one user asked why he wanted to kill the 63-year-old, the teenager supposedly replied:
