MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- The trial for a woman accused of shooting her husband in October 2009 after she reportedly learned he had removed her as a beneficiary on his insurance policy has been scheduled for Nov. 16.
In an arraignment hearing Friday in Martinsburg, Flor Demaria Slone, 41, of 395 Lake Louise Lane in Kearneysville, W.Va., pleaded not guilty to felony counts of kidnapping, attempted first-degree murder, attempted malicious assault and malicious assault.
Slone, who was released on a $25,000 home-confinement bond in November, was allowed to remain on bond by 23rd Judicial Circuit Judge Christopher C. Wilkes, who is presiding over the case.
Slone is accused of shooting Stephen K. Slone in the chest Oct. 21 at his home at 5409 Winchester Ave. in Inwood, W.Va.
Slone was separated from her husband when the shooting occurred, police have said. The victim was in court for Friday's arraignment hearing and Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Jean Games-Neely said he was living in the area.
