RIVERSIDE, CA - A California boy charged with murdering his neo-Nazi father when he was 10 said in a videotaped police interview played in court on Wednesday that he was physically abused at home and committed the shooting because he "wanted everything to stop."

The emotionally charged video of statements Joseph Hall made to a police detective hours after the shooting was shown on the second day of the boy's juvenile court trial stemming from the May 2011 killing of his father, 32-year-old Jeffrey Hall.

Prosecutors and defense lawyers agree that the boy, who is now 12, killed his father by shooting him in the head at near point-blank range as the elder Hall slept on the couch in the family's home.
