Melisa McNeill says her client, suspected school shooter Nikolas Cruz, lacks impulse control, but is ‘sad’ and ‘remorseful.’ Cruz remains in custody on 17 counts of premeditated murder; Steve Harrigan reports from Parkland, Florida.

The couple who took in school massacre suspect Nikolas Cruz months before last week’s Florida shooting said they had a “monster living under our roof” but saw no warning signs the night before the bloodbath — despite the 19-year-old’s history of trouble in school, reports said.

In an interview with the Sun-Sentinel on Saturday, James and Kimberly Snead said they never saw the violent side of Cruz, but recognized that the 19-year-old was depressed about his mother, who died in November. The couple had opened their home to Cruz, who was staying with a family friend, at their son’s request.

“We had this monster living under our roof and we didn’t know,” Kimberly Snead, 49, said. “We didn’t see this side of him.”
