Prosecutors in Lucas County, Ohio, can charge a 17-year-old girl as an adult for allegedly beating and strangling the mother of her 33-year-old boyfriend to death, a judge ruled Friday, according to local outlets WOIO and WEWS.

Kaitlyn Coones was indicted back in August with her co-defendant and so-called boyfriend Jonathon Jones.

At the hearing on Friday, cops from Sylvania Township reportedly said their counterparts in Canton asked them to perform a welfare check on the victim, Nicole Jones, 53. They checked at her home in Toledo on May 5, but could not find her. U.S. Marshals soon put out the word that they were looking for her son, Jonathan Jones, and Coones. The son had already been wearing an GPS monitor for a Wood County criminal case.
