Judge: Teen killer's mom can sue him, ex-husband

Posted: Updated:

WOODBURY, N.J. (AP) - The mother of a New Jersey teen who strangled a young girl will be allowed to file a civil complaint against the boy and his father, seeking to hold them liable for potential damages in a lawsuit brought by the girl's father.

The Courier-Post reports a judge granted Anita Saunders request this week.

Justin Robinson pleaded guilty last year to the 2012 slaying of 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale in Clayton, the Philadelphia-area town where both lived. Robinson is now 17.

Anthony Pasquale claims Robinson's parents, who are no longer married, should have known he "posed a risk to third parties."

His suit seeks damages for pain and suffering, along with funeral expenses. It also includes a wrongful death claim against Robinson and several claims of negligence against his parents.
