A Virginia sheriff says a woman has been charged with fatally shooting her 6-year-old daughter. WDBJ-TV reports that Bath County Sheriff Robert Plecker says dispatchers got a call Saturday night reporting a shooting. Deputies responded to the area in Hot Springs and found 27-year-old Darla Hise, who led a deputy to her home, where they found the girl dead. A weapon was found in the home and her 3-year-old son, who was also home, was placed in the care of other family. Investigators obtained a statement from Hise on Sunday morning after she spent the night in the hospital and Plecker says Hise was charged with first-degree murder. The girl's name hasn't been released. Her body will be taken to the medical examiner's office in Roanoke.
