According to the incident report, the mother was identified as the 31-year-old M. A. Rosborough and she is accused of shooting to death her 6-year-old son with a .243 caliber deer rifle. The investigation report indicates that the minor was shot once in the chest area and he was taken to hospital by other family members even before the officers’ arrival. Shortly after he was admitted in the hospital, the boy was pronounced dead.

The mother allegedly tried to shoot her son at least one more time, but she was stopped by her brother who immediately rushed in the room where the suspect and her injured son were as soon as he heard the gunshots.

“She was not a bad girl. She was sweet, and loves that boy. [Christmas] presents come in the mail every day that she ordered for him. She was trying to get help. We just didn’t know how bad her issues were,” Rosborough’s brother said. “[T]hat was not Amelia. That was not her. She was a loving daughter, sister, and mother. I can’t explain what happened.”
