Sheriff’s Office: 17-year-old kills father, 2-year-old half-sister

COVINGTON, La. —The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office says a 17-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the killing of his father and 2-year-old half-sister.

Watch report

The Sheriff's Office says Jacob Middleton Jr. gunned down 35-year-old Jacob Middleton Sr. and the elder Middleton's 2-year-old daughter Makayla Christine Middleton.

Middleton Jr. has been booked on two counts of first-degree murder and is being held without bond.

Middleton Jr. confessed to the killings after 15 hours of questioning, according to the family member. The Sheriff's Office says Middleton Jr. indicated that his actions were the result of, among other things, his hatred of his father for what he claimed was years of abuse and family violence.

The mother of the 2-year-old girl found the bodies of the victims in a home on Carnation Street in the Abita Nursery subdivision at about 10 a.m. Monday.
