DeKalb police have charged a 13-year-old girl with murdering her 2-year-old stepsister, Channel 2 reports. Police say the toddler’s parents left Sasha Ray and her other young siblings in the care of the teenager on Monday.
The parents returned home Monday afternoon to find Sasha missing. Police say Sasha was found dead in the backyard after a brief search. Sasha’s father, Shelton Ray and his wife frantically drove Sasha to the hospital. They called 911 and were met by paramedics along the way. Sasha was pronounced dead upon arrival to the hospital.
Ray told Channel 2 his wife was too upset to talk. He said police told him his teenage stepdaughter would be charged with the toddler’s death. The teenager’s name was not released because she’s a minor.
