A woman who shot her mother to death inside of their Chesapeake home over two years ago gave an exclusive interview to talk show host Dr. Phil. The episode will air on Tuesday, March 15.
According to the medical examiner’s report, 58-year-old Susan Hutson died from a shotgun blast to the chest at close range.
Hutson’s defense attorney argued she had a history of mental illness that had gone undiagnosed for years. However, in late 2014, a judge determined that Hutson was competent to stand trial.
Hutson received a 50 year sentence with 35 years suspended.
