FAWN RIVER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Court records show a 9-year-old boy has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of his mother with a rifle in their southern Michigan home.

The documents show the child is also facing a felony firearm charge. It isn’t clear if he is charged as an adult or a juvenile. The Associated Press is not identifying the victim because to do so would identify the child.

WOOD-TV first reported the charges.

St. Joseph County Prosecutor John McDonough told WWMT-TV that the woman’s body was found early Monday morning in Fawn River Township, about 160 miles (260 kilometers) west-southwest of Detroit.

Authorities have not released the circumstances of the killing or details of why the child is considered a suspect.
