The Braselton Police Department has arrested a 15-year-old girl in the murder of her mother, who was an Army recruiter.
First Sgt. Karen Moore, 42, was killed late Wednesday evening, when her teenage daughter allegedly shot her in the back of the head with a 9mm gun while she was watching TV and using her computer, according to assistant police chief Lou Solis.
The mother and daughter had some apparent ongoing domestic issue, he added.
The daughter later asked a neighbor in The Falls of Braselton subdivision, located off Ga. Hwy. 211, to help jumpstart her Volkswagen Beetle on Thursday, according to Solis. The vehicle was still parked in the driveway on Thursday when investigators were at the scene.
That neighbor couldn’t get the vehicle started and another neighbor was asked to help the teenager with the car, according to Solis. At some point, the girl said she couldn’t wake up her mother and one of the neighbors went inside the Sahale Falls Drive residence to help.
