Colter Peterson and Jayzon Decker from Salt Lake City, Utah, committed a heinous crime in February last year.
Both of the young men devised a plot to kill innocent Deserae Turner.
It’s hard to imagine why two 16-year-old’s would attempt to murder her, but the reason why gets worse.
Peterson kept getting messages and snap chat from Deserae, as a result, they found her “annoying.”
While playing their video games the two boys talked about how to eliminate her.
Back in 2014, Peterson had also been fed up with another girl, where he had unsuccessfully tried something similar.
The plot was again similar, where they lured Deserae, to an abandoned location and shot her in the back of the head.
There wasn’t even the slightest of remorse of panic about their actions.
They took the casing from the bullet as a memento and left the girl for dead.
They made sure to dispose of her belongings and took $55 dollars she had on her before leaving the scene.
As you can see, none of this was an accident.
Evidence suggests it was a cold calculation, but the two boys tried to say “greed” was the motivator
Peterson also claimed that he was going through depression at the time.
This is all terrifying stuff for two sixteen years olds.
And rightfully so they were made to face the charges as adults.
Deserae, who was 14 at the time, was found in an overnight search and miraculously survived the incident.
Because of how the bullet lodger in her brain she still suffers setbacks and has lost most of her autonomy.
Her future is uncertain as her life expectancy has been shaved off by 20 years because of her condition.
Turner and her family had some choice words for the accused at the hearing, she could be seen crying during her speech.
Facing Peterson directly as she is one to back down from this opportunity spoke from her wheelchair
Deserae said, “There are times I wish I could give the gun back to Colter and tell him to try again and put me out of my misery.”
“Welcome to hell,” she told Peterson. “I have been here for a year now.”
“You wanted to kill. I was an easy target and took the bullet. You should never be allowed out of prison,” she concludes.
But despite her trials and the attempt on her life, Deserae continues.
These six words will likely repeat in Peterson’s head for quite some time: “I am tougher than a bullet. “
