A Faulkner County judge set a November pretrial in a case against a Conway woman accused of killing her husband.
Lashawnda Macon, 29, who faces a second-degree murder charge and is currently free on a $100,000 bond, appeared in circuit court Monday. Defense attorney Angela Byrd represents Macon.
Macon was initially charged with first-degree battery after she allegedly shot her husband, Glen, in the chest Jan. 4.
According to an affidavit, the shooting occurred about a block and a half down the street from the couple’s home on Fair Oaks Drive in Conway after they got into an altercation.
Charges were upgraded after Glen was pronounced dead at a Little Rock hospital.
Macon drove Glen to the Conway Regional Medical Center that night, where she was later arrested, the affidavit stated. Glen was transferred to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in Little Rock, where he died later that night.
Circuit Judge Charles "Ed" Clawson Jr. set a Nov. 7 pretrial in Macon’s case on Wednesday.
