It’s a shame this story has taken a complete turn for the worst thing ever imaginable. The Indiana teen who was the recent subject of an AMBER Alert has gone from missing to murder suspect. What could go on the the mind of a child to make them want to kill the person that gave them life?  It takes a demented, cold and callous person to take a person’s life without any regard.  There’s so much more to this case than what’s being reported, EarHustle411 will post updates as they emerge.

Chastinea Reeves, the 15-year-old Gary, Ind. girl who was the focus of an AMBER Alert earlier this week, has now been charged in the stabbing death of her mother.

Thirty-four-year-old Jamie Garnett was found dead early Monday. The Lake County Coroner’s Office says she was stabbed to death.

Authorities had issued an AMBER Alert on Monday; Gary police said Reeves could be in “extreme danger.”

The teen had gone to a relative’s house and said her mother had been the victim of a crime. Shortly after arriving, the teen vanished. She was found Tuesday, Gary police reported.

Reeves is charged with murder and being held as a juvenile defendant in Crown Point. Lake County, Ind. prosecutors have filed a petition seeking to move the case into adult court. A hearing is set for April 15.

Neighbors expressed shock at the news.

“Wow — how do you kill your mother?” Jay Lew said Thursday. “I remember (Garnett) taking her children to school in the mornings and coming home from work, just being with children.”
