A 14-year-old girl accused of fatally shooting her own father has been praised by her mother as a ‘hero’ who saved the family from the clutches of an abusive drunk.
Bresha Meadows, from Ohio, has been charged with aggravated murder after she allegedly shot 41-year-old father Johnathan in the head just before 4am on July 28.
While cops do not know what led up to the shooting, witnesses say Meadows shot her father with his own gun, the same gun he regularly used to threaten the family.

Sheri Latessa, one of Bresha’s aunts, told WKBN that after the shooting the girl turned to her mother and said: ‘Now mommy, you’re free.’
Brandi Meadows, Bresha’s mother who was married to Johnathan for 18 years, has since praised her daughter for helping the family escape him.
