“Wanted” posters of the pair.

The charges for the couple — which experts said were very seldom occurring in such a case — emanate from having acquired a gun for the teen in the days ahead of the shooting and for failing to take action when informed to about Ethan’s worrying behavior, as stated by prosecutors.
