Murder Charge Filed in Labor Day Shooting

Police say 74-year-old Eddie Jean Naylor has been charged with murder in the death of Lee Ann Temple, her grandson's girlfriend. Her grandson was injured in the same incident.

Naylor is currently in the hospital, being treated for injuries sustained before the incident happened.

Investigators say that shooting occurred during some kind of family get together that evening.

"Cases like this are full of emotion," said Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun. "Everyone who lived in that area knows one another. Many of them are family members. So we're taking our time to make sure we sort through it."

Calhoun says Naylor will be brought to the jail when she is released from the hospital. Her bond has been set at $100,000.
