Milwaukee teen charged in Kenosha murder and arson

NOW: Milwaukee teen charged in Kenosha murder and arson

KENOSHA (CBS 58) -- A 17-year-old caught bragging about killing a Kenosha man on social media is now charged. 

Prosecutors say Chrystul Kizer admitted to fatally shooting a man and setting his house on fire to hide the evidence. 

Firefighters later found the homeowner inside the burning home. 

Investigators say they have evidence linking Kizer to the crime, including a selfie she took in the home that was posted hours before he was discovered. 

"This is a crime, the most serious crime known to man, taking the life of another human being," Court Commissioner Jon G. Mason said Wednesday. 

Kizer was emotionless in court. She's charged with first-degree intentional homicide and arson in the death of 34-year-old Randall Volar. 

According to court documents, that's when she pulled out a gun from her purse, pointed it at Volar, and said she was "going to do it."

She told investigators she poured alcohol everywhere and started a fire because she had seen it on TV. She then said she took off in Volar's car to Milwaukee. The car was recovered and investigators found evidence linking Kizer to the crime. She was even seen bragging about the crime on Facebook Live. 

The motive for the crime is still unclear, although she did tell investigators "she had gotten upset and was tired of Mr. Volar touching her."

Kizer's bail was set at $1 million. If Kizer is convicted she could face a life sentence.
