February 15, 2018

KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) — Murder charges have been filed against a woman accused of shooting her friend while they were partying.

The Tri-City Herald reports that 36-year-old Amy S. Brown faces a single count of second-degree murder in the Saturday death of Amanda Hill.

Investigators say Brown shot Hill during a fight at Brown’s home.

Brown told Benton County sheriff’s deputies she found Hill in the same bed with her own fiance.

Brown told investigators she knew Hill was trying to fight her, not kill her, but she still shot Hill twice in the abdomen with her revolver.

Brown was holding her friend and trying to stop the bleeding when emergency crews arrived.

Brown is being held in the Benton County jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
