The Natchez Democrat reported Shalece Thomas, 36, was charged with murder and possession of a stolen firearm after her mother, 53-year-old Sarah Thomas, was shot in the head.
Investigators said the shooting happened around 2:00 a.m. on Friday, November 25 at a home on Abbott Street. Thomas died the following day at a Jackson hospital.
According to investigators, Thomas also had an outstanding felony warrant from Texas. Police said her warrant stems from her failure to appear in court after bonding out of jail for felony possession of dangerous drugs.
