(WMC-TV) - Thirteen years after her boyfriend's death, Jacqueline Parson-McFarlin, 43, was indicted on charges stemming from his murder.
Parson-McFarlin appeared in court Tuesday morning to face a second degree murder charge. She opted to get her own attorney.
Harvey Glenn was shot and killed in November 2000. He died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Parson-McFarlin is accused of shooting Glenn during an argument at the home they shared in southwest Memphis. Investigators say she flew to New York the day before her boyfriend's body was found and told relatives there that she had shot him. Those relatives then called a family member in Memphis, who discovered Glenn's body at the house.
The 43-year-old woman never returned to Memphis and was arrested on a murder warrant on November 22 at her home in Conway, Ark.
"Our officers have responded to what was presented to them and as you can see through the Attorney General's Office, we were able to seek an indictment," said Major Anthony Rudolph, Memphis Police Department. "Thirteen years is a long time and it's good to be able to bring a family some closure. And also it's a testament to good hard investigative work."
The statute of limitations on second degree murder is 15 years, so her arrest came with less than two years to spare.
Jacqueline Parson-McFarlin's bond is set at $200,000. She is due back in court December 17.
