Scary Excuse Gets Max Sentence for Step Sister’s Death

 BILOXI, Miss. — A Biloxi teen will spend most of his young adult life in prison for shooting and killing his 13-year-old step-sister in 2012. 

Jonathan Morales, 19, was sentenced Monday to the maximum 20 year sentence for manslaughter, but three years were suspended.  He must also pay a fine and funeral expenses. 

The day of the shooting, Morales called 911 and told the operator Sadie Warden had been killed in a drive-by shooting.  But investigators said Morales shot the girl inside the family’s home and dragged her body outside.  Morales later confessed, but said he was only trying to scare Warden.
