An eighth-grade Pennsylvania girl accused of having her mother killed over her dumb dating rules will reportedly be housed in an adult prison until her trial.

Jamie Silvonek, 14, and her alleged boyfriend, Caleb Barnes, a 20-year-old soldier stationed at Fort Meade, were arrested in March after Silvonek’s mother was found stabbed to death in a shallow grave outside of Philadelphia.

Prosecutors say Silvonek was upset her mother, Cheryl Silvonek, disapproved of the relationship. Via the AP:

Authorities said Barnes and the teenager met in October, when she was 13, but she told him she was 17. The teen’s mother found out about their relationship in early March and ordered them to end it. A day later, the teen told Barnes in a text, “I want her gone,” police said.

Even so, the Morning Call reports Cheryl “took her daughter and Barnes to a concert in Scranton and a diner near their home just before she was killed.”

Barnes, who was subsequently charged with murder, eventually admitted to stabbing Cheryl in his car, claiming Silvonek was sitting in the backseat during the attack.

On Saturday, a judge reportedly rejected Silvonek’s motion requesting transfer to a juvenile facility. The AP reports that prison authorities will keep the teen—who has been charged as an adult—housed “away from older inmates.”
