for shooting and killing her boyfriend may have been acting in self defense.
Susan Marlow pleaded not guilty in a Nelson County courtroom Friday. Marlow
is accused of shooting James "Marcy" Thomas III in her driveway.
Marlow's attorney Jason Floyd said Marlow and Thomas dated and were not

The judge set a $200,000 property bond, which means Marlow could use her
home as bail credit to be released in the meantime.
Marlow is due back in court April 16 for a preliminary hearing.
