A plea hearing is scheduled for a Wellington resident this morning. According to online court documents, Colby Sue Weathers, 41, is charged with 1st degree murder in the June 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.
A three-day jury trial in the case was originally scheduled to begin yesterday, but that was cancelled last week. Today’s proceedings will get underway in Caldwell County court room at 9:00 a.m.
