An Arkansas teen has plead guilty to killing his teen sister, murdering her by shooting the teen 3 times in the head in her sleep at their family’s rural Arkansas home.
Colton Harvey, 15, allegedly hated his straight A’s making sister so much, he took his father’s .22-caliber rifle, walked into his 16-year-old sister’s room, pointed the gun at her head and shot her.
Reportedly, after being shot in the head once, the sister, Candace Harvey, 16, awoke screaming after being shot, so the brother then shot her again twice more in the head.
