Sister Stabbed

File - In this Tuesday, April 30, 2013 file photo, the family of slain 8-year-old girl Leila Fowler attend a vigil held for her at Jenny Lind Elementary School in Valley Springs, Calif. Leila's father, Barney Fowler, center, stands with Leila's mother Crystal Walters, right, at his shoulder. The father of a 12-year-old boy arrested in the stabbing death of his 8-year-old sister says he believes his son is innocent until he is shown evidence that proves otherwise. Barney Fowler said on Monday May 13, 2013 that the family is standing behind the boy "until they have the proper evidence to show it's my son." Sheriff's deputies in the Central California foothill community of Valley Springs arrested the 12-year-old on Saturday in the April 27 death of 8-year-old Leila Fowler.
