Police say they do not think the murder was premeditated so Batts will be facing reckless homicide charges. Batts said his daughter came home with a gun shot wound to her torso. He drove her to the hospital where she died. After investigating, police learned the little girl was shot inside of the home. Jeremy Johnson, a spokesperson for Sumner County Schools released a statement saying,

“Our entire school district is grieved to learn of the tragic loss of one of our sixth grade students, Timea Sashay Batts. Timea was a bright and kind girl who was well loved by her classmates and teachers.”

Batts was arrested on charges of reckless homicide, tampering with evidence, false reporting and possessing a firearm as a felon.
