Teenager who shot his sleeping sister gets sentenced to 45 years in prisonJune 7th, 2012 - 7:49 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Russellville, June 7 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Teenager Colton Harvey has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for shooting at his sleeping sister. He was 15 at that time, when he was in the house with his 16 years old sister who was sleeping.
Out of the blue he took out his father’s .22-caliber rifle and shot at his sister. She woke up with a startle and that angered Colton all the more, so he shot at her twice more.
Colton’s parents were out buying groceries when the incident happened. After shooting at his sister, Colton picked up some of his stuff and drove away in his father’s pickup truck. He drove to the sheriff’s office with an intention to confess his crime, but he couldn’t summon the guts to do so.
So he drove to his friends place and later he again went to the sheriff’s office and this time around, he found the courage to confess to his crime.
It is unclear why Colton shot at his sister Candence. When he was questioned at length about the motive for the crime, then he said that he didn’t know. Colton said that, “I don’t know why I did it. It just happened.”
