INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A 13-year-old has been charged with the murder of a 69-year-old woman killed during a likely home invasion on Indianapolis' near east side, the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office said Tuesday.

Prosecutors have not yet decided whether to charge the teen as an adult.

No one else has been charged in the case.

Police arrested the juvenile on Oct. 10, hours after Antonia Macri-Reiner was shot in her home.

Police have not released any details about the shooting, but neighbors have told reporters that Macri-Reiner was shot during a home invasion.
