Colleen Ritzer, a Danvers math teacher, was found dead this week in a wooded area near Danvers High School. Ritzer was 24 years old, and her death was suspicious. On Wednesday, a 14-year-old Danvers high school student was arrested and held on charges of murder in Ritzer's death.

Jim Braude and Sue O'Connell — filling in for Margery Eagan — asked callers whether it was appropriate the 14-year-old be tried as an adult. How young is too young? When does a heinous crime warrant stricter legal action? If trying the defendant as an adult is a step too far, what should be done instead?
