According to the Johnson County Sheriff’s department, Fitzgerald was charged with second-degree murder in the Dec. 20 slaying of Patricia “Tee” Fitzgerald.
Police had responded to an armed disturbance and found the elder Fitzgerald deceased from stab wounds. Her daughter’s bond was set at $500,000 bond and she is due in court Thursday.
