A 15-year-old relative of a Morrison woman whose body was found in a burning home Saturday shot her in the head the day before, then she and a friend set the house on fire to hide the crime, investigators said Tuesday.

Schroeder's body was found on Saturday in the burning property.

The teen has also been charged with concealment of homicidal death and arson. Another 15-year-old girl could face charges of concealing a homicide and arson for allegedly helping the daughter. They located the daughter, who confessed to the killing.

She texted Rachel about what she did, but her friend did not believe her, so Anna sent her a picture of her mother's body. Helm would then head over to the Schroeder house, and would allegedly help Anna in cleaning blood out of the carpet before heading off to bed.

The next day, the teens allegedly moved Peggy Schroeder's body from the living room to her bedroom and covered her with a sheet. On Friday, the two girls reportedly went to Subway to eat, where Anna vomited in the bathroom after learning her father would be traveling to Morrison. Kaylene told the outlet she plans to study to become a sign language interpreter in memory of her mother, who was hearing-impaired.
