VENTURA, Calif.—Without saying a word, a teenage boy shot a 15-year-old gay classmate in the back, then delivered a "second, coup de grace" shot to the back of the boy's head, prosecutors allege in new court documents.

McInerney is charged with first-degree murder and a hate crime in the February 2008 death of Larry King at E.O. Green School in Oxnard. King dressed in a feminine manner and told friends he was gay.

McInerny was 14 at the time of the shooting and turned 15 last month....
