Upon arriving at the scene, deputies discovered an injured man at the door and a deceased woman inside a bedroom. The man, who had been shot in the shoulder, informed the deputies that his stepdaughter had shot him and killed his wife.

Carly was later found and taken into custody approximately half a mile away from the house. Cotton described the footage captured by two security cameras installed in the family’s home. He noted that Carly is seen entering her mother’s bedroom, followed by the sound of a gunshot, a scream, and two more gunshots. Ashley Smylie was shot twice in the face and once in the chin, according to Cotton.
