JENNIER Crumbley, mom of school shooting suspect Ethan Crumbley, appeared to break down in tears as a judge charged her and her husband James on four counts each of involuntary manslaughter.
The parents of Ethan Crumbley, the Oxford High School shooting suspect, made their first court appearance in an Oakland County court in Michigan on Saturday morning.
They both plead "not guilty" to the charges, and were each placed under $500,000 bond.
An Oakland County district judge ruled the couple a "flight risk" during their arraignment hearing.
Late Friday night, police located the "fugitive" parents, who were traveling on foot after their car was reportedly found abandoned in the area of Mount Elliott and Lafayette in Detroit, Michigan.
It has now been reported that James Crumbley bought the gun for Ethan on Black Friday as a Christmas present, which goes against Michigan state gun laws.
Oakland County prosecutor, Karen McDonald told Fox2 News on December 2 that both James and Jennifer Crumbley had been “difficult,” adding Ethan should not have had access to his father’s gun.
McDonald stated, “We know owning a gun means securing it properly locked up and keeping ammunition separate and not allowing access to other individuals especially minors.”
Arguing that people should be held accountable when a child gets a hold of their handgun she concluded, “We will be making a decision swiftly.”
Ethan Crumbley is being charged as an adult with four counts of first-degree murder, one count of terrorism, among others for the shooting that killed Hana St. Juliana, 14, Madisyn Baldwin, 17, Tate Myre, 16, and Justin Shilling, 17.
