PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — The parents of a teen accused of killing four students at a Michigan high school have been charged with involuntary manslaughter, and on Friday evening authorities were still searching for the pair.

Prosecutor Karen McDonald says Jennifer and James Crumbley committed “egregious” acts, from buying the gun for Ethan Crumbley, 15, to use and failing to intervene when they were confronted with his drawing.

Authorities say they were searching for the parents, but their lawyer says they’re returning to the area to face arraignment.

McDonald described chilling moments that day when a teacher found a drawing of a gun, a person bleeding and the words “blood everywhere” at the boy’s desk.

Ethan Crumbley is charged as an adult with murder, attempted murder, terrorism causing death and gun crimes.

A judge ordered him held without bond and transferred to jail from a juvenile facility.
