Although Prosecutors can not release the boy’s name or even say what he’s being charged with unless charged as an adult, what is known is that the 14 year old who police say shot and killed his 11 year old brother on July 18th 2009 at his Grandmother’s house is scheduled to appear in Lawrence County Juvenile Court on Wednesday.
Officials say Jace Freeman, the victim was shot in the head on July 18th 2009 and died one day later. Initially no weapon was found leading investigators to believe it may have been a stray bullet, but a week later the brother admitted the two were playing when the brother was shot accidentally.
According to authorities, the brother told police he had hidden the gun not wanting other to think Jace had shot himself, during later interviews the brother admitted to planning the shooting.
No motives in the shooting have ever been released.
