(AP) – A Central Texas schoolteacher is jailed under a murder charge in the fatal shooting of her teenage son as she was driving him to his first day at a new school. Sarah Elizabeth Hunt is in McLennan County Jail in Waco under a $500,000 bond.
Sheriff Parnell McNamara says deputies and police in the small town of Riesel were called Monday morning to a reported stalled vehicle. They arrived to find 17-year-old Garrett Hunt’s body in the front seat with multiple gunshot wounds and a .40-caliber handgun on the floorboard. His mother said she didn’t mean to shoot him.
