HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

Psychological testing has been ordered for the 14-year-old girl charged with aggravated murder in the shooting death of her father.

Court documents state the girl purposely retrieved a firearm, loaded it and shot him in the head in an attempt to kill him. 

The girl was arrested on Feb. 23 shortly after calling 911 and telling a dispatcher: "Can somebody come and put me in handcuffs? ... I just shot my dad," according to a recording of the call. 

When Hamilton police responded to the family home on Millvale Avenue, they said they found her father, James Ponder, 71, shot in the face.

He was alive when he was taken to Fort Hamilton Hospital in an ambulance and then flown via AirCare to University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he died, police said.

Investigators called the shooting an "isolated domestic situation."

The teen will remain in a juvenile detention center until a decision is made in June.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
