Teen charged as adult with killing grandparents

Posted: Updated:

STANFORD, Ky. (AP) - A central Kentucky teenager has been charged as an adult with setting fire to a home and killing her grandparents while they slept.

The Advocate-Messenger (http://bit.ly/1j8rhgw ) reported that a Lincoln County grand jury indicted 17-year-old Allison Deshae Wilson of Eubank on two counts of murder and one count of arson.

Wilson's bond has been set at $1 million. The indictment came down after Wilson's case was transferred from the juvenile system to the Lincoln County Circuit Court.

Judge Janet Booth transferred Wilson from juvenile court to Lincoln Circuit Court on April 1.

Everett and Linda Garland died in a house fire that started the night of Nov. 20. And gutted the home.

Autopsies determined that smoke inhalation killed the couple.
