A boy was not happy that his father hooked up with a new girlfriend, so he killed her.
An 11-year-old Burke County boy pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and possession of a firearm in the shooting death of his father's girlfriend.
The boy was 10-years-old when he was accused in the murder of Jennifer Albright at their home in Midville. He received the maximum sentence from juvenile court judge Saunders Willie and will be jailed until the age of 21.
The child was not named because he was not charged as an adult. Midville is in central Georgia and about 160 miles southeast of Atlanta.
Albright, was watching the child, his younger cousin and her 2-year-old on December 30. Prosecutors said the boy shot Albright in the back with a 12 gauge shotgun while she was changing her daughter.
