ELKMONT, Ala. (AP) — A 15-year-old boy charged with killing five members of his family, including  three younger siblings, is being charged as an adult. 

Mason Sisk, of Elkmont, faces four counts of capital murder, the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office said. Authorities released his name for the first time following the decision to charge him as an adult.
