Oakland County prosecutor Karen McDonald filed criminal charges against the parents of a boy accused of killing four students at a Michigan school earlier this week.
15 year old Ethan Crumley charged with killing four students at Oxford High School now. His parents also charged James crumbly is charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter, jennifer crumbly is also charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter. According to the prosecutor. The gun used by Ethan was legally purchased by James Crumley just last week. It was stored in an unlocked drawer. Clearly based on the statements of the shooter. The statements of mom that was his gun and new details revealed about the day of the shooting, the prosecutor says the teacher came across a note by Ethan that alarmed her. It included horrific drawings and messages that led to a meeting between educators and the parents. James and jennifer Crumbly resisted the idea dia of then leaving the school at that time of their son leaving the school at that time. Instead James and jennifer crumbly left the high school without their son. He was returned to the classroom, prosecutors say Ethan have the gun with him. Later that day, shots were fired when the news of the active shooter at Oxford High School had been made public, jennifer Crumbly texted to her son at 11 22. I'm sorry. At 1 22 PM quote Ethan, don't do it end, quote four students were killed seven students and a teacher wounded the notion that a parent could read those words and also know that their son had access to a deadly weapon that they gave him is unconscionable in it and I think it's criminal, it is criminal. The parents are scheduled to be arraigned today but they are not in custody. Dance Gentlemen, NBC News.
