"Just going to a convenience store and that’s it," Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said Thursday.

Montgomery seemed to become emotional while discussing Elijah during an news conference Thursday morning.

"As a father myself of a 16-year-old, I cant imagine what this young man’s family is going through," Montgomery said.

The initial attorney for Adams claimed he was mentally ill and did not receive care after being released from prison just days before the murder.

The Arizona Department of Corrections did not list Adams as someone who was seriously mentally ill.

"The designation of someone who may have a mental illness who may require treatment doesn’t always occur in the justice system because of the wide verity of mental illness people can present with," Montgomery said.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery reiterated that there is no criminal charge for a hate crime in Arizona.

However, the state does allow for enhanced penalties for crimes committed on the bias of a series of factors, including race.

Montgomery said in a first-degree murder case, the only options for sentencing with a conviction are life without the chance of parole and the death penalty.

Montgomery said race could be used to help inform the jury why the state is pursing a certain charge and sentence.

According to Montgomery, his office is currently evaluating whether or not to pursue the death penalty for Adams.

In police paperwork, officers said Adams stabbed Elijah in the neck because he felt threatened by the rap music Elijah was playing. According to the documents, Adams said he has been attacked by minorities who listened to similar music.

Buffalo is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) southeast of Dallas.

Trial begins for man charged in Lewiston stabbing of mother The trial of a Lewiston man accused of stabbing a women to death in front of her twin sons started Monday morning. Albert Flick, 77, is accused of killing 48-year-old Kimberly Dobbie outside a laundromat exactly one year ago Monday. Assistant Attorney General Robert Ellis says Flick murdered Dobbie. He told jurors they will see surveillance video showing the moments before, during and after he allegedly stabbed Dobbie 11 times. "You see him pull a knife out – it was hiding behind his back – he steps forward and thrusts the knife at her and you can see Dobbie fighting for her life," Asst. AG Ellis said.

In court documents, officials wrote, "History of mental illness. Previously petitioned by law enforcement."

It was after this violent incident that Adams was held at the Lower Buckeye Jail, which is where he assaulted a corrections officer in March 2018.

The following month, the court conducted a mental evaluation. Two doctors wrote now sealed reports about Adams' mental state. The court deemed Adams "competent" but added that he was enrolled with Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care, where he was receiving behavioral health treatment.

“I don’t care what mental health issues you have. You know right from wrong,” Raheen Al-Amin, Elijah's father, told 12 News on Friday.
