Update: Twas The Murder Before Christmas, Jan. 3, 2011
Suspect Mona Yvette Nelson appears in court.
Capital murder suspect Mona Yvette Nelson appeared today, Jan 3, 2011, in the 182nd Harris County District Court, where Judge Jeannine Barr advised the defendant of her rights. Nelson will continue to be held in the Harris County Jail without bail.
Self-Proclaimed Activist (whom many refer to as militant) Quanell X was present in the courtroom at the request of the defendant's family.
In an earlier statement, Quanell X has stated that he believes the motive to be a drug related debt but did not elaborate further.
The defendant is still denying that she murdered Jonathan Foster as of this writing.
I will continue to update as the case goes on.
