A 13-year-old Milwaukee girl accused of fatally stabbing her step-grandfather because he poured her milk down a drain is being held on $150,000 cash bond.

WAUWATOSA - Thirteen-year-old Labrina Brown was in back court Tuesday, charged with killing a man in a fight over milk.

Even though the 13-year-old girl is charged as an adult, she remains in Children's Court.

The accused killer stands less than 5 feet tall. A child facing a charge of murder.

We're not showing her face because she could end up facing juvenile charges.

According to court officials, she has no prior juvenile record. No record and the defense says she's been in and out of social service agencies because of neglect charges.

Both her grandparents and her mother were in court supporting her Tuesday.

Back in her north side Milwaukee neighborhood near 24th Place and Auer, people are still in shock.

"There's been a number of things that's been happening to this young ladies family. I guess that was just her breaking point," neighbor Courtny Shoate explained.

The criminal complaint says she was angry with her step grandfather because he wouldn't give her some milk. He wanted to give it to a baby.

That's when the complaint says Brown took a paring knife and stabbed Robert Moon in the throat.

She admitted stabbing Moon to neighbors and police.

Neighbor Courtny Shoate said, "She ran out of the house and she was bloody and stuff and you know, and I asked her, 'What did you just do?' She said, 'I cut him.'"

Reporter: "She knew she was going to jail?"

Shoate: "She said she didn't care. She was dysfunctional. She was a good person inside, but just didn't' show it."

Her bail was set at $150,000. She'll remain at the Children's Center until later this month.

If Brown is convicted as an adult, she could get 60 years in prison.

If she's convicted as a juvenile, she'd get 5 years in youth protection.
