KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A judge has ruled that a Kansas City, Kan. girl will be tried as an adult in the shooting death of a teenager during a botched carjacking.

Keaire Brown was 13 when she allegedly shot and killed 16-year-old Scott Sappington on July 23 as he drove away from dropping off his younger siblings at his grandmother's house. He was on his way to work when he was shot to death in a suspected carjacking attempt.

Now 14, Brown is charged with felony murder and attempted aggravated robbery. Wyandotte County District Judge Dan Cahill denied a defense motion that Brown would be best rehabilitated in eight years of juvenile detention.
