ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (AP) — Authorities say the U.S. teenager accused of fatally shooting his parents and three younger siblings had never been in trouble with the law.

A spokesman for the New Mexico child welfare agency had no contacts with 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego or his family.

A records check also indicated the teen had never been involved with the juvenile justice system before being charged over the weekend killings.

Investigators say there was no history of any emergency calls to the home in the recent past.
