PONTIAC, Mich. (WILX) – Jury deliberations will continue into Tuesday in the trial of Jennifer Crumbley, the mother of Oxford High School shooter Ethan Crumbley.
Judge Cheryl Matthews did a blind draw to choose three alternates who would be sequestered at home during Tuesday’s proceedings.
Jurors in Oakland County sent the defense and prosecution back to the courtroom for clarification twice as they continue to deliberate a verdict in Jennifer’s trial.
Crumbley is facing four charges of involuntary manslaughter related to the November 2021 shooting at Oxford High School – a shooting her son Ethan pled guilty to.
Jennifer and her husband James Crumbley have both pleaded not guilty to the four charges they each face. James Crumbley’s trial is scheduled to begin on March 5.
The two are the first parents in the US to be charged with being responsible for the deaths related to a shooting their child carried out.
Four students, Madisyn Baldwin, 17; Hana St. Juliana, 14; Tate Myre, 16; and Justin Shilling, 17, were killed when Ethan Crumbley, then 15, opened fire at the high school in northern Oakland County on Nov. 30, 2021. Six students and a teacher were wounded in the shooting rampage.
Ethan Crumbley was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in December 2023.
