    Ugly and sad: Pre-Teen Girl Killed Dad

    KATY, Texas - A 12-year-old suburban Houston girl is in juvenile custody after police accused her of shooting her father fatally.

    Officials say 38-year-old Mark A. Nelson of Katy died at 7:45 p.m. Wednesday at Memorial Hermann Hospital-Texas Medical Center in Houston.

    Assistant Police Chief Tim Tyler says police were sent to the Nelsons' home shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday after a relative called 911.

    Officers found Nelson lying on his side in the master bedroom, shot once in the back of the head.

    Tyler tells the Houston Chronicle that Nelson worked nights and may have been trying to sleep when he was shot.

    Nelson's daughter was charged with aggravated assault before he died. Friends tell the Chronicle that there was ongoing tension between the girl and her father.

    Very Sad.

    Extraordinarily sad.......

    It has to be asked.......how did a 12 year-old get hold of a loaded gun without supervision?

    Sad indeed, but what now? Put her in the system and watch her come out worse then what she went in, in all aspects of her life or juvy until she's 18, then prison if that's a possibility for life.

    I would need more info before calling it murder. In any case, that is really sad.

    I was wondering the _EXACT_ same thing.

    A matter of personal safety for ones own self as a parent (a sucky thought but things like this do occur with regularity) as well as an active manner of looking out for ones own childrens future.

    Now this girls whole life is ruined because she in a moment acted on emotion, and had free access to a tool of easy use.

    There was also another story in the local media here saying that friends have said the daughter was scared of dad, never wanted to go home and was recently seen with bruises on her neck.

    This is the second homicide I have heard of here in Katy since I moved here almost two and a half years ago. It will be interesting to see how it all turns out.

    Katy 12-year-old charged with murder in father's shooting

    A 12-year-old Katy girl has been taken into custody, accused of fatally shooting her father in the back of the head on a quiet cul-de-sac in the Heritage Park West subdivision.

    Mark A. Nelson, 38, died at 7:45 p.m. Wednesday at Memorial Hermann Hospital-Texas Medical Center.

    Harris County prosecutors filed murder charges against the Cardiff Junior High School seventh-grader today, said Donna Hawkins, a prosecutor and spokeswoman for the Harris County district attorney's office, who added that the girl will be adjudicated in the juvenile court system. She cannot be tried as an adult because she is under 14.

    A detention hearing has been set for Friday morning.


    Nelson was shot while he and his daughter were alone at the family’s home in the 3300 block of Jan Court off Morton Road, Tyler said.

    The girl did not attend school Wednesday as classes had been canceled because of high water.

    “It was a big shock,” said neighbor Aaron Johnson, who has lived next door to the family for eight years. “I usually saw them outside playing basketball in the driveway or in the garage.”

    Tension had been building between the seventh-grader and her father over the last few days, said neighbor Gabrielle Young, 18, who said her sister is the suspect’s best friend.

    “Sometimes (the father) came across as a very nice person, but you never know what is happening behind closed doors,” Young said.

    Katy police went to the family’s home after receiving a 911 call from another relative at 11:12 a.m.

    Officers found Nelson lying on his side in the master bedroom.

    He had been shot one time in the back left portion of his head, Tyler said.

    Nelson worked a night shift job and may have been trying to sleep when he was shot, Tyler said.

    Police did not immediately release a possible motive for the shooting.

    Young said the 12-year-old girl often came over with bruises on her neck.

    Young described the child as “a really good kid” who made good grades.

    “I saw him yelling at her a lot,” Young said of the injured man, “and she hated going home. When he showed up, her whole mood would change.”


    Weapons found in home
    Tyler said authorities have never received any reports of domestic abuse from the residence.

    Child Protective Services spokeswoman Estella Olguin said Wednesday she did not have information available.

    Investigators took a .38-caliber revolver into evidence, Tyler said. Other weapons, including another handgun and a shotgun, were found elsewhere in the house, he said.

    The girl was questioned for several hours at the Katy Police Department and was expected to be moved to the Harris County Juvenile Detention Center late Wednesday.

    Both parents living at the home are health care workers, Tyler said.

    The couple married in December 2003, according to county records.

    Thats the million dollar question. I dont know though. My almost 16 yr old son could probably grab one of my guns while Im in the shower. There are certainly reasons a kid would want to ACTUALLY KILL their parents I guess.

    Not enough info. to call it murder She could have been abused by the father. It happens every day and nothing comes of it until she reaches the end of her rope.
