WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (970 WFLA) - A Winter Haven mother has been arrested and charged with second degree murder, charged with mistakenly shooting her daughter.
It happened Monday night after Adele Bing claims she had a fight with her boyfriend at her house on 18th St. SE. He left with a head injury after he said Bing hit him with a gun.
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.
