Gee, I wonder why we didn't hear anything about this...



Police have charged 18-year-old Benjamin "Benny" Brantley with murdering his 16-year-old girlfriend Kayla Castro.

“I know now that she's in a better place. She'll be looking for us, looking over us,” says Kayla Castro’s long time friend.

Amber Morse says her close friend, Kayla, was a typical teenage girl who loved experimenting with different color hairstyles and having fun.

"She'd usually, you know, hang out with friends, get her nails done… made sure she'd go shopping, get new clothes."

But on Saturday night, amber got a terrifying phone call about her friend since the fifth grade.

"My dad just told me what happened and I was like... you know...my heart just like dropped. I didn't know what to do."

16-year-old Kayla was dead.

According to neighbors the Hardaway High School student was visiting her 18-year-old boyfriend Benjamin “Benny” Brantley at his home on Wellborn Drive when she was shot in the chest.

"It couldn't happen cause you know, I couldn't picture it."

Police say Brantley told them he was walking towards his bedroom with a sawed-off, 12 gauge shotgun when it went off, striking the young girl.

She was pronounced dead at 9:40 pm.

At the crime scene Saturday night, the suspect's mother said after the shooting, Brantley ran out of the house and down the street repeatedly yelling, "I didn't mean to do it."

Brantley later turned himself into police. Reports state that he is charged with murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of a sawed-off shotgun.

"Kayla really liked Benny... she'd do anything for him. Benny'd do anything for her,” says Amber, who has known Brantley since she was about 10.

Amber says the couple had been dating on and off for about two years...and says Brantley is like a brother to her.

"Benny's still a good guy...he said it was an accident."

Even though amber says it still feels like a dream, she'll always remember one thing about Kayla. “She was always there."

Brantley is scheduled to appear in Recorder’s Court on Tuesday morning at 9.

Authorities say they responded to a call just after 9 PM Saturday.

A sawed off 12 gauge shotgun. Yeah, no shananigans there. Why do you even have a sawed off shotgun, which I suspect is being called "sawed off" because it violates the law on barrel length, a felony.

At least she died doing what she loved.

Federal felony, at that.

The look on the shitbird's face isn't the look of someone remorseful. That's the same thousand yard stare you see in life-long gang bangers. Take that same 12ga and blow his balls off with it, then let him bleed.

I'm sure she did something to deserve it. This peaceful young black man wouldn't hurt anyone. He's just like Trayvon.

Pamela Brantley says that her son did not intentionally shoot Kayla Castro. Brantley says on Saturday night the sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun was returned to her son by a friend. When he went to put the gun in his room it went off, killing his 16-year-old girlfriend Kayla.

"If my son meant to kill that girl he would have never turned himself in."

That is great.

"If my son meant to kill that girl, he would have taken as many cops as he could with him".

"If my son meant to kill that girl, he would have r@ped her mom and friends first".

"If my son meant to kill that girl, he would have claimed self-defense because she had skittles in her pocket"

"My son took out dat white bitc... shit I mean if my son meant to kill that girl..."
