Jennifer Long Arrested, Police Investigation Report
Charles Long, who survived the stabbing, was treated at the scene of the homicide and airlifted to Huntsville Hospital. The sole suspect was detained at the crime scene and allegedly told officers that his 8-year-old son was dead and that he remains in the “master bedroom” upstairs. “After entering the residence, officers made contact with a white female coming down the stairs inside the home. The agents ordered the woman to get on the ground and she complied,” an affidavit reads.
The knife used in the stabbing was still “sticking out” of the victim’s chest when officers found it. The boy who was identified as Tyler Weston Gardiner had “multiple stab wounds.” For the stabbing death of a person under the age of 14, Jennifer is charged with capital murder, and under 13A-5-40(a)(15), the intentional killing of a child under the age of 14 could result in a possible death penalty offense. Additional charges against the defendant are pending as she is also accused of stabbing her father, Law and Crime reported.
