PASCO COUNTY, Fla.- A 14-year-old is facing attempted murder and arson charges after officials say she allegedly set her house on fire early this morning with her mom and brother asleep inside.
Detectives are looking into a possible link to fictional characters and violent websites.
Deputies believe the teenager was influenced by characters like Slenderman and an online series called Soul Eater.
Officials say a fight over household chores sparked the girl to try and kill her family inside this house.
According to authorities, she lit a bedsheet doused in bleach on fire in the garage and then she took off.
Sheriff Chris Nocco is warning parents this could happen again and to keep a close eye on which websites your teens are visiting.
The teen is in juvenile detention center now. It's unclear if she will be charged as an adult.
