A pre-trial conference was held last Friday in the case of a Wellington resident. According to online court documents, Colby Sue Weathers, 41, was charged with first degree murder following the 2012 death of her father, Tex Delana, 60. The two reportedly shared a home at the time of the shooting and Weathers was taken into custody almost immediately following the incident.
Weathers has waived her right to a trial by jury and remains in custody at the Fulton Diagnostic Center. She was found to be competent to proceed with the court process in March of this year.
The three day trial will get underway on September 8th before a Caldwell County judge.
