Mother charged with murder denied bond


PRINCETON (WVVA) - A woman accused of murder following a dispute between mothers has been denied bond.

Judith Kowaleski was denied bond by Mercer County Circuit Judge William Sadler, even though the prosecutor's office suggested she be granted bond and go under home confinement.

Police say Kowaleski shot and killed Elizabeth Slagle in March on a road in Brushfork after the two argued about an incident that occurred earlier between their children on a school bus.
