A 14-year-old boy has been taken into custody in the slaying of a 46-year-old Southeast Texas teacher found shot in the head at her home. Staci Lisenby of Orangefield in Orange County died the day after she was shot while in her kitchen on Feb. 20. She had been a teacher at Orangefield Junior High School.

Orange County sheriff's deputies aren't releasing the identity of the suspect because of his age. However, he has been booked into the juvenile detention center in nearby Beaumont and awaits arraignment later this week in Orange.

The community of 700 residents is situated near the Louisiana border about 100 miles northeast of Houston.
