“The fight between Marshall and the aunt had ended and was over, therefore any actions taken against anyone from that point forward is no longer defense,” according to McGinnis.
The teen’s 12-year-old brother witnessed the shooting, McGinnis said, leading to the cruelty to children charge. Authorities said Marable was living with Marshall and his aunt.
“Seventeen years old, getting ready to graduate from here at North Springs High School and had his whole life in front of him,” McGinnis told Channel 2 Action News. “Keep up with your kids. Know where they are. Know what they’re doing.”
