LEXINGTON, Mo. (AP) — A 38-year-old woman has been charged in the shooting death of her father at their home in a small town in western Missouri.
Colby Sue Weathers was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in the death Wednesday of her 60-year-old father, Tex Delana. Delana was shot to death at their home in Wellington, a Lafayette County town of about 800 residents along the Missouri River.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/MEM73i ) that court documents released Thursday say Weathers intended to also shoot herself but lost her nerve. Authorities say Weathers called police after the shooting. She is being held on $750,000 bond.
The lawyer listed as representing Weathers did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment. Weathers' next court appearance is scheduled for July 11.
