An 11-year-old girl and her 15-year-old boyfriend have been arrested for trying to burn the girl’s sleeping mother alive:
“Samantha Broadhead and Jack Ault have been charged with attempted murder and arson after the fire Tuesday in Clearwater — about 20 miles west of Tampa on Florida’s Gulf Coast — MyFoxTampa.com reported.
Clearwater Police Department detectives say the young couple poured gasoline on Nancy Broadhead’s bedroom floor and bed, and then set the room aflame. Police say the pair escaped in the mother’s 2007 Ford Focus.”
Police spokeswoman Elizabeth Watts said a motive was “probably just typical teenage angst.”
