A 14-year-old boy in DeKalb County, Alabama has been charged with murder.
This after the shooting death of 38-year-old Kelena Annette Hicks in Mount Vernon on Tuesday afternoon.
Authorities took the juvenile into custody after deputies responded to a 911 call on County Road 109 just after 1 p.m. on Tuesday.
Deputies found Hicks in the living room of her mobile home suffering from a gunshot wound.
Hicks was taken by DeKalb Ambulance Service to a helicopter which rushed her to Huntsville Hospital. She was pronounced dead at 4:20 p.m.
District Attorney Mike O'Dell ordered an autopsy and Coroner Tom Wilson delivered Hicks' body to the Alabama Department of Forensics Science lab in Huntsville.
The juvenile was transported to a detention facility in Anniston where he will be held pending a hearing on his status for trial.
DeKalb County Sheriff Harris said 'This is one of the most disturbing cases I have had to deal with in my career. You just can't imagine a 14 year old doing something this brutal. This will be a case for the courts to decide on the status of this young man. He will remain in juvenile custody until that decision is made. I am very sorry for the family and their loss in this case. This young woman had just lost her father last month and this family is devastated. My thoughts and prayers go out to them. We will withhold any further comment on this case at this time due to the sensitive nature of the circumstances.'14-Year-Old Charged with Murder in DeKalb Co., AL
