Police Charge Pearl City Woman for Mother's Murder

(KHNL) - A woman accused of murdering her own mother has been charged in the case.

Friday night, police charged Carol Weidman with murder in the second degree. Court documents state the victim's boyfriend found the victim's body in her home late Wednesday evening.

The victim's 25-year-old daughter was sitting in a room nearby.  The documents say that when Carol Weidman was taken to the Pearl City police station for questioning, she told an officer her mother had tried to attack Weidman's brother and father in the past.

The papers say she told the officer: "I had to kill her before she killed me. It was always on my mind."

Weidman's bail is now set at $50,000. She'll make her first court appearance on Monday.
