Teenage Girls Charged With Murder

Compiled From Wire Services

Two teenage girls together pulled the trigger of a rifle and killed an elderly man, then threw a party at his mobile home and showed the corpse to at least 10 friends, the sheriff says.

None of the partygoers contacted police until after the body was found by relatives two days later, Sheriff Roger Altena said.

Devon Watts, 17, and Kelly Heemstra, 18, were charged Monday with murder in the slaying of 73-year-old Leonard Claude Hughey, with whom they had been living.
