Investigators said camera videos from inside the family’s northeast Oklahoma City home show Watts give her mother, Linda Watts, a gun and told her to "do what she wanted with it."

Court documents said when Watts heard gunfire from Lynda’s room, she did not call 911, and instead reached out to other people who then alerted authorities.
