The young man accused of stabbing a 9-year old boy to death is expected to be back in court Friday.
Eighteen-year-old William Schultz reportedly confessed to stabbing and killing Jordan Almgren. It happened in April as Almgren was asleep in his Discovery Bay home.
Schultz told the Contra Costa Times he did it and said he just wanted to know what it was like to take someone's life.
A defense attorney for Schultz said mental illness played an unquestionable role in the stabbing death.
