Latoya Watkins testified Thursday that her son was in a foul mood when she picked him up from Westside High School on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018.
Later, at their house on Westmount Road, Kevon Watkins, who had been playing a game on Xbox, changed the password to the family Wi-Fi because of a slow connection due to the number of people in the house using it.
Latoya Watkins said her 13-year-old son came into her bedroom and told her what Kevon Watkins, then 16, had done. Then, the fatal confrontation unfolded.
