ABC Family has rounded out the cast of its forthcoming pilot about a teenage murderer — with Charlie Sheen’s ex!

Denise Richards has been cast in the previously announced drama Socio as the mother to Danny (Avan Jagia), a teen who returns to town after being locked up for five years for murdering his aunt. Additionally, Kimberly Quinn (Terriers) has been cast as Tess, mother to Danny’s best friend Jo (Maddie Hasson).

Per the description, Socio will follow Danny’s re-acclamation to normal life and his continued battle against town suspicions, which reach new levels of intensity after a student at his school is murdered. The big question: Is Danny a serial killer or an innocent kid with a big secret? (Dun, dun, dun)
