Friday morning, an Iowa teen will be in court accused of shooting a man to death.

Des Moines police say 16-year old Hailey Bass shot 19-year old Anthony Moss on April 14th.

She has been charged with first degree murder. Bass’ court appearance on Friday is for a preliminary hearing.

Moss’ body was found in an apartment on Forest Avenue early on April 14th. Police say Bass went to police the following night and made a statement. She was subsequently arrested.

Though Bass is a juvenile, a first degree murder charge garners an automatic waiver to adult court.
