US girl faces new charge in milk-dispute killing

US girl faces new charge in milk-dispute killing

A prosecutor plans to upgrade the charge against a 14-year-old Milwaukee girl accused of fatally stabbing her step-grandfather in the neck after he poured her milk down the drain.
Assistant district attorney Kevin Shomin said Monday he plans to change the charge against Labrina T. Brown from first-degree reckless homicide to first-degree intentional homicide.
Prosecutors say Brown killed 48-year-old Robert A. Moon on Aug. 8.
Brown is charged in adult court. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for next month.
Defense attorney Joy Sherard says she was surprised by the decision to amend the charge, but she thinks Shomin's reasoning is correct.
Sherard says Brown's family has a history of domestic issues and the case is about more than spilled milk.
