A 16-year-old girl has been charged in connection to the Amber Alert case in Livonia, Michigan, where twin newborns were kidnapped from their mother in a hotel earlier this month. The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office announced the charges on Monday. The judge will have the option to sentence the suspect as a juvenile, as an adult, or to blend a juvenile and adult sentence together.
Last week, three other individuals were charged in connection with the Amber Alert case. Shantell Jones, 23; Davion Chandler, 19; and Curtis Lee Slay, 18, all from Detroit, were charged by Prosecutor Kym Worthy. The incident occurred on August 20 at around 10:10 p.m. when two-week-old twins were taken from a Quality Inn hotel in Livonia. Fortunately, the twins were returned to the police unharmed the following day.
Jones, according to the prosecutor, had befriended the mother of the twins with the intention of taking the babies. Chandler, Slay, and the 16-year-old suspect, whose name has not been released by authorities, allegedly aided Jones in the kidnapping.
All four individuals face multiple felony counts, including kidnapping, child enticement, unlawful imprisonment, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and child enticement, and larceny in a building.
