The 14-year-old girl accused of killing her mother and shooting her stepfather inside a Brandon home has been charged as an adult for murder and attempted murder.

The deadly incident happened on Ashton Way in the Farmington Station subdivision of the Rankin County city on Tuesday. Police responded to a report of shots fired just after 5 p.m.

Upon arrival at the scene, police encountered the stepfather suffering from a gunshot wound to the shoulder. He pointed deputies to the body of his wife, 40-year-old Ashley Smylie, who was deceased from an apparent gunshot wound. He also said his daughter, later identified as Carly Madison Gregg, was inside the home holding a pistol before she fired at him. After a physical fight ensued in which he took the gun from her, Gregg fled the scene and jumped over the home’s backyard fence.

Additional agencies came in to help locate the teen, including the Mississippi Highway Patrol and its helicopter. At approximately 5:35 p.m., the female suspect was located not too far from the residence and taken into custody without incident.

Gregg has since been transferred to the Rankin County Adult Detention Center. She appeared in court on Wednesday, pleaded not guilty to her charges, and was given a $1 million bond.

The city of Flowood, where Northwest Rankin is, issued the following statement in response to the tragic incident:

 “Our deepest prayers and condolences are with our Northwest Rankin family during this difficult time. We love our Cougar family. You are not alone.”
