LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Pamela Bordeaux, also known as Pamela Rene Schoening, was indicted on May 16 by a grand jury of the crime of Murder with use of a Deadly Weapon on April 22.
Police say Bordeux shot and killed her former son-in-law, 32-year-old Sean Babbitt, after a visit with his son in her home.
Bordeaux's defense attorneys claim she was acting in self-defense. Prosecutors say there was no evidence of a struggle and Babbitt was shot 10 times.
A grand jury issues an indictment for a crime based on evidence that leads them to believe there is probably cause to believe that a crime has been committed by a criminal suspect.
