ESTILL SPRINGS, Tenn. (AP) — The mother of a 12-year-old boy who allegedly shot a classmate to death in Tennessee is facing charges.
News reports say Jennifer Ann Amacher was indicted on five reckless endangerment charges following an incident at her Estill Springs home. The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says Amacher's son shot and killed 11-year-old Sienna Owens in Amacher's garage Dec. 11, 2015.
The indictments against Amacher were handed up following the May term of the county grand jury. The Tullahoma News (http://bit.ly/1s0kz24 ) reports she faces five counts because five juveniles were present at the time of the shooting. Authorities say Amacher was home when the shooting occurred.
Her son is facing a juvenile petition of reckless homicide.
Amacher is free on $15,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court May 13.
