A Florida minor has been officially ch’arg’ed with second-degree mu’rde’r after a’llege’dly k’ill’in’g a woman that was fig’hti’ng with her mom.
According to Wesh 2 News Po’lice say just before midnight on May 30, two women were fig’hti’ng in the cour’ty’ard area between buildings at the Windsor Cove Apartments on Mercy Drive.
The women were identified as 31-year-old Lakrisha S. Isaac and 41-year-old Lashun Denise Rodgers.
According to wit’nesses, Isaac punc’hed Rodgers at a bar’bec’ue at their apartment complex. The woman punched back, hi’tti’ng Isa’ac in the face.
At some point, wit’ness’es say Isaac “took off her backpack and gave it up” to her 10-year-old daughter.
As the two women continued to fi’ght, wit’nesses say they saw the girl “rumm’aging through the backpack” and heard a g’uns’h’ot.
It’s unclear why exactly pol’ice chose to charge the 10-year-old in this case and what’s next for her.
On Tuesday, State Att’orney Monique Worrell called the case one of the most tra’gic she’s seen in her entire career.
“Our office has started the process of reviewing this case and will consider all of the facts, including the age of the child, and all of the surrounding circ’umstances, when making a chargi’ng decision,” a statement read from Worrell’s office. “We want to be clear in stating that no cha’rging decision has been made by our office. However, we an’ticipate that whatever char’ges we eventually file, if any, will ens’ure she receives the int’erven’tions necessary to address her behavior, help her change and grow, and ensure the pub’lic’s safety going forward. We enco’urage the public to remember—no matter your feelings surrounding this tr’age’dy—this is still a child.”
Several reports however say Issac’s daughter has k’ill’ed before saying she al’leged’ly sta’bbe’d her cousin to de’at’h during a previous al’terca’tion.
