There's definitely a case for premeditation ... as well as out of control anger.

His 3-year-old daughter is molested by his 15 y/o son ... I can understand being 'more than a little upset' about that! Eek
Ebony, the report doesn't say that the 3-year old was the boy's sister. It says it was a 3-year old girl. It doesn't look like the girl was the child of these parents, or the brother of the boy.

And look, the temporary insanity defense is problematic here, not just because of the premeditation, but because if he was temporarily insane enough to kill his own son, he's probably prone to doing the same kinds of thing to other people. Hopefully he doesn't hear news like this, but if he kills his son over this, then maybe he'll shoot up his office if he gets fired one day. People who are prone to fly off the handle shouldn't get off for flying off the handle.
