Feb. 8, 2024 ~ On Tuesday, February 6, a Michigan jury found 45-year-old Jennifer Crumbley guilty of four counts of involuntary manslaughter for the school shooting carried out by her son, Ethan Crumbley. In November 2021, 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley opened fire at Oxford High School, wounding seven and killing four students.
