Eventually, the nine year old was able to break out and called 911. She told police she and her mother, Jennifer Ayres, heard a gunshot from upstairs. Jennifer went up and the 9 year old went up behind her. They found that Ashlee had shot her stepfather, Thomas Ayres. According to the 9 year old little sister, Jennifer and Ashlee began to fight.
The reports do not say exactly what happened next. They only say that Ashlee then took the three sisters to the basement saying they were going to play a game. Ashlee's boyfriend's role in all this is unclear. He was not present at the murder scene according to the sister.
They are both currently incarcerated in Boone County, IN, where they were arrested. He is being held on a probation violation and agreed to be extradited. Wisconsin has 30 days to pick him up.
She is fighting extradition but we all know it will happen and I guess then we will find out what they charge him with and what, if any, her motives were. Her next hearing is set for April 8th in Boone County, Indiana.
