The jury in the trial of Jennifer Crumbley, the mother of the Oxford High School shooter, will continue deliberations on whether she should be held criminally responsible for her son’s actions. Jennifer Crumbley faces four counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the 2021 shooting that took place at Oxford High School in Michigan. The jury paused to ask two questions during deliberations, seeking clarification on culpability and whether they could infer anything from evidence prosecutors didn’t introduce regarding how the shooter obtained the gun. Crumbley’s historic trial is the first time a parent has been tried for manslaughter in connection with a mass shooting, and it could set a precedent for parents being held criminally responsible for their children’s actions. If convicted, she faces up to 15 years in prison. After Jennifer’s trial concludes, her husband, James, will be tried separately in a trial scheduled to start on Mar. 5.

In December, Jennifer and James’ son was convicted and sentenced to life without parole.
