A South Carolina teenager accused of planning to blow up his high school told authorities that he wanted to die, go to heaven and then kill Jesus.
Federal prosecutors told a judge Tuesday that Ryan Schallenberger, 18, made those statements to police.
The teen is accused of plotting to use a weapon of mass destruction, a charge that carries a possible life in prison upon conviction. Prosecutors say his statements indicate the boy needs a psychological evaluation. They have a point.
