The mom of a six year old shot and killed by his eleven year old brother is charged with neglect since she didn't protect her children from violence. Prosecutors in Martinsville, Indiana say Amanda Vadagrifft did not curb her son's behavior since he often threatened his siblings and allegedly held knives at their throats while babysitting or doing chores. She and her boyfriend face neglect charges after the eleven year old shot his brother in the head with a rifle while neither adult was home. Prosecutors say he was trying to scare the younger boy into cleaning his room.
