Investigators said later on, Bing answsered a knock at her door armed with a gun and baseball bat.  She told them she thought it was the boyfriend and she was afraid, so detectives say Bing fired a shot.  It was her 25-year-old daughter, Ruby Bing, who was holding her four-month-old child.

Ruby Bing died at the scene.  The child was not hurt. 

Adele Bing is charged with second degree murder and child abuse without great bodily harm.
