POLICE ARREST ALABAMA TEEN IN WOMAN’S GUNSHOT SLAYING

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say a 16-year-old boy is charged with murder in the shooting death of a woman in Auburn.

Lee County Coroner Bill Harris says 66-year-old Martha Jones White was found dead of a single gunshot wound at a home on Thursday night.

Police haven’t described exactly what happened, but they say a teenager who lives at the home was arrested in the killing. A police statement issued Friday says the youth was arrested in Dadeville with a truck taken from the residence and the gun believed to be used in the slaying.

Authorities haven’t explained any relationship between White and the teen. The Associated Press isn’t naming the suspect because he is a juvenile.
