DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Danville teen who fled the state after her stepmother’s death has been indicted on a murder charge.

Jenna Oakley was reported missing after the body of her stepmother, 52-year-old Rhonda Oakley, was found in the family’s home on Sept. 1.

WDRB-TV reports (bit.ly/2dv7ZQl) Jenna Oakley was indicted Thursday for complicity to murder and theft by unlawful taking. The 15-year-old girl was found by police in Rhonda Oakley’s car in Tucumcari, New Mexico on Sept. 3. Her boyfriend, 20-year-old Kenneth Nigh, was in the passenger’s seat.

Nigh is charged with possessing stolen property and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Authorities said Nigh attempted to hang himself in jail. His injuries were so severe, he was taken to a hospital in Texas where he was placed on a ventilator.
