The mother who reported her son to police after he amassed what she feared were weapons to attack a southwest Missouri movie theater during a "Twilight" showing said he had recently asked her if he was a failure.
Ashlock, who was not the county's prosecutor in 2009, said he didn't know what happened after the commitment.
