A 12-year-old girl from Oak Grove, Kentucky tried to poison her stepbrother because she believed her mother loved him more.
The Christian County Sheriff’s Office reported a 12-year-old girl attempted to kill her four-year-old stepbrother as an act of jealousy and told someone via Skype that she was going to use Mr.Clean to finish the job. Police charged the preteen with murder because Kentucky does not have an attempted murder law. Captain Chris Miller explained the law during a press conference:
“She’s facing a murder charge because Kentucky does not have an attempted murder charge there. Depending on the outcome of her medical evaluation, that murder charge could be reduced to something else with the same penalty,”
The girl confessed to her mother that she tried to kill her stepbrother after he had fallen ill from ingesting the chemical.
“It’s quite normal for brothers and sisters to fight, brothers and sisters to disagree. This is kind of above the normal for what we would expect out of that age.”
During an interview, the girl explained that her little brother was annoying her which led her to poison him.
Police arrested and charged the girl with murder and she was transported to a local hospital for an evaluation.
