Besides buying their son a gun used in the mass shooting at Oxford High School, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald alleges that the parents created a "pathway" for violence, the Detroit News reports.
In a motion to Judge Cheryl Matthews this week, McDonald asked to permit evidence in trial that shows the scary environment the parents created for son Ethan, who is now 16.
Mike Martindale of the News writes:
McDonald wrote how Ethan Crumbley, dating back to the age of six years old, was exposed to parental arguments, alcohol and substance abuse, and marital infidelity. Purchases at a local liquor store totalled nearly $4,000 in the year of 2021 alone, according to the filing.
