10-year-old charged with second-degree murder in wife’s death in Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. — A 10-year-old girl in central Florida was arrested Tuesday, more than a week after authorities said she shot and killed a woman who got into an argument with her mother.

The Orlando Police Department said the girl faces second-degree murder charges. She was taken into custody and housed at a local juvenile justice center.

The girl’s mother was arrested last week on charges of negligent homicide, child neglect, negligent custody of a firearm and aggravated assault with a firearm, authorities said.

Police officials said the mother got into an argument with Lashun Rodgers, 41, outside an apartment complex late Memorial Day. The mother gave her daughter a bag, and the girl took the gun out of the bag and fired two shots, according to police.

Rodgers later died in a hospital.

Juvenile records in Florida are mostly confidential, so it’s not known if the girl has an attorney. Online records show that the mother was appointed a lawyer by prosecutors, but no further details were given.
