16-year-old Georgia teen Candace Walton has been arrested in McCracken County, Kentucky accused of murder and arson.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s office says Walton was connected to a fire at her home on Thursday morning.
Two bodies were found inside the house and Walter’s mother’s car was missing.
US marshals later found Walton driving her mother’s stolen vehicle.
Investigators believe the bodies in the home are Walton’s mother and older brother but are waiting for autopsy results to confirm the identities.
The Monroe County district attorney says Walton will be tried as an adult after being extradited from Kentucky to Georgia.
