Kristina Kandis Huber, 23, has been in custody on other charges since the shooting.  Melissa Ann Huber, 45, died in the incident on NE Hill Road in Somerville.

Kristina Huber is being held in the Morgan County Jail on $250,000 bond.

Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin says the shooting apparently stemmed from the fact her parents had told her they planned to force her into a drug rehab program.

Kristina Huber’s father, James, led authorities on a high speed chase last month.  The chase led to a standoff with Huber hiding out under the Highway 31 river bridge in Decatur.  Deputies say James Huber fired shots at them throughout the chase.

He has been charged with attempted murder as a result.
