Albany-- A teenager is in jail, charged with shooting his brother's ex-girlfriend. Wednesday afternoon, crime scene technicians gathered evidence at the home on Thornton Drive.

Around noon, someone saw 32-year old Darlene Smith lying in her yard, and called 911. Smith had been shot in the head.

Investigators say she was able to give them some information when they first arrived. That led them to 18-year old John Wheeler, who's now charged with aggravated assault.

Police arrested his brother, 27-year old Dexter Siegler, last night for terroristic threats. They say he told Smith's current boyfriend he would shoot Smith next time he saw her.
