    AR - Candace Harvey, 16, murdered in her Ozark home, 15 Jan 2012

    Very similar case in the news recently:

    Arkansas boy Colton Harvey, 15, charged in death of sister, 16:

    At least this time he turned himself in instead of trying to blame it on some mythical intruder. But just as with the Anderson case, it seems like whatever went down, it happened fast--their folks left to go grocery shopping at 8am, and by 9:30am he was at sheriff's office confessing. Family of "avid hunters," so the boy had to know about gun safety. Nobody's talking like this is some kind of gun-cleaning accident gone wrong, so it seems to be deliberate. Which makes me wonder just what the h*ll is going on with teen-age boys shooting their sisters to death? Makes you wonder how many girls are afraid to be alone in the house with their own brothers.

    Ark. teen who shot sleeping sister gets 45 years

    RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas teen pleaded guilty Wednesday to murdering his sleeping sister and was sentenced to 45 years in prison for a crime he still hasn't fully explained.

    Colton Harvey, 15, grabbed his father's .22-caliber rifle one January morning while his parents were out grocery shopping. He walked into his 16-year-old sister Candace's room, pointed it at her forehead and fired. She awoke with a scream, so he shot her in the head twice more.

    ..........LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- An Arkansas teenager who admitted shooting and killing his sister as she slept never told police or prosecutors why he did it, but according to a childhood friend, the 15-year-old hated the straight-A student and athlete.

    That friend described animosity between Colton Harvey and his 16-year-old sister, Candace, in an interview with authorities obtained Thursday by The Associated Press under a Freedom of Information Act request. Harvey pleaded guilty to second-degree murder this week in exchange for a 45-year prison sentence.

    "He's always said that he hated his sister, but he wasn't ever saying nothing about he was gonna kill his sister," the friend said in February, about a month after Harvey pointed his father's rifle at his sister's head and fired three shots.
    -------

    Harvey's attorney said there was some sibling rivalry, but nothing that could have foreshadowed what happened.

    Harvey's friend said Candace snitched on her brother even though he kept his mouth shut. He described Candace as the "golden child" who got whatever she wanted, while Harvey "just got kicked off to the side."

    "I guess he finally got tired of it one day and went off," the friend said.
