BEND, OR -- The granddaughter of a 92-year-old Bend woman killed on New Year’s Eve was arraigned Monday for the elderly woman's murder. Angela Judd is also charged with theft and criminal mistreatment. The 45-year-old woman was arrested last Friday.
District Attorney John Hummel has requested a preliminary hearing to see if there’s enough evidence to continue the case. There appears to be a legal issue concerning statements made by the defendant and the state wants to make sure these statements will be admissible.
