The 1st Degree Murder case of 79-year-old Lavetta Langdon has been bound over to Red Willow District Court for trial. On Friday, Langdon waived her preliminary hearing in Red Willow County Court. County Judge Ann Paine continued her $5 Million bond and Langdon remains in the Red Willow County Jail.

Langdon is also charged with Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony in the death of her 78-year-old husband, Larry Langdon, in their McCook residence on August 20th.

A McCook Police Department report says officers were called to a physical altercation at a McCook residence. The body of Larry Langdon was located in a bedroom. Lavetta Langdon told an investigator she was struck by her husband. She later went into the bedroom and fired a gun at him as he was sleeping.

A date for her arraignment in Red Willow County District Court was not immediately set.
