WARREN, Ohio — A teen girl who said she fatally shot her father because he was abusive is expected to return to her northeast Ohio home this weekend after serving an eight-month sentence in a juvenile detention center and a mental health facility.

Meadows pleaded guilty last May to delinquency by reason of involuntary manslaughter for killing 41-year-old Jonathan Meadows at their family's home in Warren in July 2016. She was 14 at the time.

The teen was sentenced to two months in a juvenile detention center followed by six months at a mental health facility in Cleveland.
