The brutal death of a radio news personality doesn't here in New York doesn't revoke the media from doing its job, like not focusing on the fact that Goerge Weber lured a 16-year-old boy to his house to have sex right before he died:
A teenager arrested in the stabbing death of a New York City newsman has pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree murder and weapon possession.The focus of this story everywhere I've read is on the teen and his creepy MySpace page, yet what should get equal treatment here is that this boy was seduced by an older man. Of course, I don't know how this will play out, but from the from the looks of it Katehis' lawyer has a valid case on his hands if he can prove that not did George Weber rape this kid, but he may also have a long history of sexually abusing and assaulting young boys.
John Katehis is being held without bail. He was arrested in Middletown, and arraigned Wednesday night in Brooklyn. -Click here to see photos of John Katehis, from his MySpace page (Warning: Some photos may be disturbing)
George Weber was stabbed at least 50 times and his ankles were bound. Police say Katehis claimed he was answering an online ad offering $60 for rough sex.
Katehis' lawyer, Herbert Moses, told reporters that his client was being used by an older man. He says details about their relationship will emerge later.
Weber worked 12 years as an on-air reporter at WABC in New York. He also had worked at stations in California, Denver and Pennsylvania.
