A 15-year-old girl from White Springs, Florida, was charged with fatally shooting her 16-year-old brother as he slept.
The girl claimed the brother beat her.
The parents were away, leaving the brother to care for his younger sisters.
The mother admitted that they locked the 15-year-old up when she misbehaved. The longest they kept her locked in her room was 20 consecutive days.
This whole story is a nightmare.
