Harvey County Attorney’s Office files formal charges in juvenile’s death case


NEWTON, Kan. (KSNW) – The Harvey County Attorney’s Office has filed formal charges in the case of a 14-year-old Hesston girl who died Sunday night at a Newton home.

The Newton Police Department responded to that incident in the 900 block of South Walnut. The 16-year-old male suspect arrived home, where police say a group of three to four teens was hanging out. Witnesses said the suspect appeared to be visibly intoxicated and was waving a gun around. He pointed the gun at others in the room before fatally shooting Madison Elizabeth Parrott. Her family identified her Tuesday.

A 16-year-old boy was taken into custody at his home on the morning of July 12. He is charged with first-degree murder, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, and criminal threat.

The suspect is not being identified due to his age.
