Northview Student Charged As Adult In Murder Of Sister Christina Sneary

August 4, 2011
A former Northview High student, 17-year old Elena Janelle Rendell has now been charged as an adult with the murder of her 14-year old  sister Christina Sneary, an eighth grader at Ernest Ward Middle School last year.
Rendell (pictured left)) appeared in court Thursday afternoon and was charged as an adult with one count of manslaughter with a firearm. Her bond was set at $300,000. She is set to appear again in adult court on August 18. If convicted, she faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 25 years to life in prison.
The two girls had recently moved with their mother from Sunset View Lane in Molino to the 7600 block of Kipling Street in the Ferry Pass community. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to that home about 1:40 p.m. Wednesday, where they found the 14-year old girl had been shot in the neck. She was transported to Sacred Heart Hospital in critical condition where she died just before midnight.
The shooting reportedly stemmed from an argument over a cell phone. Both girls were described by a relative as being special needs children.
Rendell was taken into custody at the scene of the shooting by Escambia County Sheriff’s deputies.
“It appears that the two juveniles were at home and involved in some sort of argument,” said sheriff’s office spokesman Deputy Chris Welborn. “At some point, Rendell retrieved a firearm and shot the victim.”
Sneary (pictured left) would have been a freshman this fall at Northview High School.
