MOUNT VERNON, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a 16-year-old girl and her boyfriend have been charged in the shooting deaths of her parents.

Kentucky State Police said in a news release Friday that the girl and 22-year-old Christopher Evans are charged with murder in the deaths of William Bryant and Chara Bryant on June 8.

Police say Evans entered the couple’s home in Mount Vernon and shot them. An arrest citation says Evans washed his clothes and burned his shoes to destroy evidence.

The girl, who has not been identified, is being held at the Adair County Juvenile Detention Center. A jail representative said she could not provide information on the case and it could not be determined if the girl has a lawyer.

Online court records do not indicate if Evans has a lawyer.
