MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — A south Georgia woman accused of killing her daughter-in-law at a home in Atlanta’s suburbs has been indicted on charges of felony murder and malice murder.

News outlets report a Cobb County grand jury indicted 63-year-old Elizabeth B. Wall of McRae on Thursday in connection with the June 23 slaying of 35-year-old Jenna Wall in Powder Springs.

Prosecutors say they believe Elizabeth Wall had researched shootings and bought a gun months before she allegedly shot her daughter-in-law four times in her home. Police say Jenna Wall’s two young sons were home at the time of the shooting.

The victim taught kindergarten at Kemp Elementary School in Cobb County and had been going through a divorce with the suspect’s son.

Elizabeth Wall was also indicted on gun charges and child cruelty charges.
