13 Year Old Shoots His Sister

A Henderson County judge ruled a Larue 13 year old boy should remain in juvenile custody Monday, three days after he is charged with murder in the shooting death of his 12 year old sister.  The shooting took place Friday evening in the small town of Larue, located on Highway 175 between Athens and La Poynor.  Nathan Chisholm called 9-1-1 Friday to say his sister, Alexandra shot herself in their home. The Henderson County Sheriff's Department says he later changed his story, telling them he shot her during an argument over washing the dishes.  Chisholm told police his parents were at the hospital at the time of the shooting because his dad was experiencing heart problems. Neighbors say the family was new to the area, having lived there less than a month. Both siblings attended La Poynor schools. Funeral services for Alexandra are scheduled for 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Evangelistic Temple Church in Palestine.
