Teen Sentenced to Juvie for Father's Murder

( Hamilton, Ohio ) - Sentencing Monday for a 15-year-old girl accused of killing her father in 2017.

Earlier this year, the girl admitted to murder in Butler County Juvenile Court in the shooting death of 71-year-old James Ponder Sr in February, 2017. Investigators say he was fatally shot while laying in bed. No public comment about motive has been made, and the girl did not speak at Monday's sentencing.

The judge ordered her to serve six years in juvenile detention, but she could face 15 to life in adult prison if she doesn't behave.
