BALTIMORE (AP) — The mother of a 13-year-old Baltimore boy who admitted to accidentally shooting a girl with a rifle is herself under investigation.
That’s according to the woman’s lawyer, who tells The Baltimore Sun that a prosecutor told him his client’s DNA was found on the girl’s bra.
The woman’s son this week admitted accidentally shooting 13-year-old Monae Turnage, whose body was carried out of a rowhouse and disposed of with garbage bags. Another child admitted to helping conceal Turnage’s body.
Attorney Isaac Klein says a prosecutor alerted him to the DNA link and asked if there was a reasonable explanation.
Turnage’s relatives say they were also told about the DNA by homicide detectives. They say they were told it could show she was involved in moving the body.
