A house across the street from Wellington High School became a crime scene one year ago Thursday.  Colby Sue Weathers, 39, has been charged with killing her father, Tex Delana, 60. The two reportedly shared the home that was the sight of the shooting.

Weathers has been charged with one count of first degree murder. Judge Brent Elliot granted a change of venue in April. Her case is now being heard in Caldwell County. Public Defender Jeff Nilson is arguing that Weathers suffered from a mental disease or defect. The Court has ordered a mental examination for Weathers.

She is scheduled to next appear for a plea/trial setting on August 5th.
