Teen Indicted in Sister's Murder

by Ramonica R. Jones

A 15-year-old boy accused of killing his little sister earlier this year in Leggett has been indicted. The boy could have a trial date set in Polk County by the end of January.

Detectives believe he shot and killed his own sister, 13-year-old Frankee McCarty. He's charged with murder, injury to a child, and tampering with physical evidence.

Authorities also charged the teen's mother, Kimberly McCarty, with making firearms accessible to a minor.
