PA teen accused of killing grandmother over going to school

Posted: Updated:

"He didn't want to go to school."  Police in Pennsylvania say that is why a 14-year-old shot and killed his grandmother.

Hunter R. Reeser, of Harborcreek Township, is being charged as an adult with first-degree murder.  Authorities say he shot 60-year-old Sandra Orton with a .22-caliber rifle on Tuesday.  He then reportedly called her husband and said he found her wounded.

But authorities say he later called 911 and confessed to killing her.  Orton was found dead in her vehicle, shot in the head.

Reeser later told authorities that he killed his grandmother because he didn't want to go to a school meeting.

In Pennsylvania, children must be charged as adults in murder or homicide cases.
