GOLDSBORO, N.C., April 23 (UPI) -- North Carolina authorities have charged a 16-year-old girl with soliciting two men to kill her parents, the Raleigh News & Observer reported Friday.
Heather Nicole Johnson of Goldsboro, a student at Southern Wayne High School, has been charged with two counts of solicitation to commit a murder. She was in the Wayne County jail under $95,000 bail.
On April 10, the teenager was reported as a runaway. Two days later local sheriff's deputies launched a second investigation after a firearm was reported stolen from the family's home in southern Wayne County.
On April 14, the missing teen was found in Wayne County. Two days later, she was charged with the larceny of her father's handgun.
Her father said his daughter only took the gun so her boyfriend, Bobby Ray Dudley, 19, could sell it.
After tracing the automatic handgun to Long and Dudley, Wayne County authorities charged the teen Tuesday. She was already in custody for felony larceny of a firearm.
