59-year-old Betty Jean Angeline waived her rights to a preliminary hearing.

The two Independence residents were killed within a couple of months of each other earlier this year and both were friends with Angeline. If convicted of capital murder, Angeline faces the death penalty. She is being held without bond at the New River Valley Regional Jail. The next step will be for a grand jury to hear the evidence and determine if there is enough for a trial.
