PRINCETON, W.Va. — A Mercer County circuit judge has placed an accused murderer on home confinement as a condition of bond.
Judy Kowaleski, 42, of Brushfork, has been in jail since March 28 when she shot and killed the mother of her daughter’s best friend during an argument.
Kowaleski and Elizabeth Slagle had gotten into a fight after their daughters did earlier in the day on a school bus.
Kowaleski is charged with first degree murder but has yet to be indicted. The next grand jury is set for Oct.
The judge put several restrictions on Kowaleski as part of her home confinement.
