A 14-year-old New Jersey boy charged in the shooting death of his 12-year-old half-brother has been released from a juvenile detention facility over the objections of prosecutors.

The Jersey Journal reports that a judge agreed to release the teen to his mother’s custody this week, but said he must wear an electronic monitoring bracelet. The teen’s mother is a Hudson County corrections officer, and the gun used in the shooting was her service weapon.

The boy is charged with aggravated manslaughter, hindering and a weapons offense in the Feb. 24 shooting.

County prosecutors had sought to have the boy remain in juvenile detention indefinitely, and it was not known Wednesday if they would appeal the judge’s ruling.
