Ark. teen surrenders after sister is fatally shot

(AP) - Authorities in western Arkansas are awaiting preliminary autopsy results in the death of a 16-year-old girl whose brother says he shot and killed her this weekend.

Franklin County Sheriff Anthony Boen says a 15-year-old boy was arrested Sunday morning after he told investigators he shot his sister to death.

Authorities found the girl's body in a bedroom at the family's home near Ozark.

Boen says the boy didn't say why he allegedly killed his sister.

His name has not been released because he's a juvenile. Boen says the boy is in custody in nearby Sebastian County and is expected to go before a judge on Tuesday.

The Arkansas State Police are investigating. Spokesman Bill Sadler declined to comment any further.
