Boy, 11, charged with killing father's fiancee, who was 8 months pregnant - jealous of dad's love

An 11-year-old Pennsylvania boy consumed with jealousy was charged with killing his father's fiancee - who was 8 months pregnant, police and relatives said.

Relatives said the youngster shot 26-year-old Kenzie Houk in her bed in the family's farmhouse in Wampum, Pa., because he was envious of the couple's unborn son, due in two weeks.

"It's tragic," said a relative who did not want their name used. "They were to be married. He was jealous."

Lawrence County police said the boy was charged with criminal homicide and criminal homicide of an unborn child.

Distraught family told the Daily News that cops said the boy shot Houk sometime around 8 a.m. Friday with his own youth-model shotgun.

He then calmly caught the bus to school with Houk's 8-year-old daughter, they said. His father, identified by family members as Chris Brown, was at work at the time.

"Chris was paying more attention to Kenzie and the new boy coming along so he was upset," said another relative.

Houk's body was discovered later that morning by her 4-year-old daughter, who ran out of the house crying, the relatives said.

The girl flagged down tree trimmers working near the house, about 35 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, and they called 911.

why could an 11 year old get hold of a firearm anyhow...I mean, shouldnt they be locked away...like teach your kids to shoot, but if they arent supervised, surely you wouldnt leave them alone with it
