accused of having her 10-year-old son kill his father, her husband.
Judith Hawkey's husband, Robert Breininger was found
dead from a single gunshot wound to the head on November 3, 2003. On that day,

home on the report of an alleged accidental shooting involving a then
10-year-old boy, Hawkey and Breininger's son.
According to the Defiance County Sheriff's
Office, which is investigating the case, deputies found Breininger in a bedroom
of the couple's home in Mark Center with a single gunshot wound to the head. A
coroner pronounced him dead at the scene.
Breininger's death was originally ruled
accidental, but further investigation led to Hawkey's indictment by a grand
jury in March 2013.
Now, Hawkey is facing six charges, including
felony aggravated murder. Hawkey is also charged with four counts of
endangering children, one of which is a second-degree felony.
