River's edge

A la Mumia, Evan Savoie and Jake Eakin have answered CBS News' questions, but not about the events of the day that Craig Sorger died. The accused boys were 12 at the time; Sorger was 13. Sorger was beaten with a stick and stabbed more than 30 times in Ephrata, Grant County, Washington:

Jake Eakin has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, and has agreed to testify against Savoie when Savoie goes to trial in November.
