38-year-old Carmen White from Houston is facing capital murder charges after reportedly shooting and killing her sister, Cynthia Cervantes. Following the act, the woman allegedly forced her 13-year-old son to aid in dumping his aunt’s corpse, per the New York Post.

According to KPRC, a document revealed the alleged motive behind the murder, saying,

The witness said White was “very angry” about Cervantes calling police, having to go to jail and her previous car being towed and not being able to recover it from the tow lot.”
A warrant is currently out for White’s arrest.
