BEND, OR -- A Deschutes County Grand Jury has indicted a Bend mom for Aggravated Murder, in the killing her seven-year-old disabled son. Last week, police were called to Mount Hope Lane, in southwest Bend, by a family member who found the boy shot and Jordan unresponsive. She was taken to St. Charles with a life threatening condition.

 

District Attorney John Hummel says investigators were willing to wait for her to recover before charging the woman, "Upon her release is when we arrested her. So, her exact condition, I don't know those details, but the hospital professionals clearly thought she was well enough to be released."

 

Hummel says his investigation is just beginning, but he believes Jordan intentionally caused Mason's death, "What's clear is that Ms. Jordan shot her son, and the Grand Jury charged her with Aggravated Murder because of that." He tells KBND News, "It's a horrific situation. By all accounts, Mason was beloved by everyone who met him. So, we mourn his loss and, at the same time, we go forward with this prosecution."

 

Jordan is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon. Hummel says he's not yet decided whether to ask for the death penalty.
