TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

A police report states six weeks before her slaying, a 13-year-old Arizona girl told a friend she had discovered something terrifying about her stepfather.

The Arizona Daily Star reported Saturday Jayden Glomb told a friend she was "super scared" after discovering something about her stepfather, Joshua Lelevier.

The report says the friend showed police screenshots of conversations with Glomb, in which Glomb says she was "terrified." Her friend told Jayden what Lelevier was doing was "disgusting."
