Arkansas woman accused of killing grandmother faces new charge

BENTONVILLE -- A woman accused of killing her grandmother was arrested again, this time accused of intentionally hitting a bicyclist with her vehicle last month.

Andrea Lea Wilson, 26, appeared in court Wednesday for a bail hearing after her arrest on felony charges of aggravated assault and battery.

Wilson was already being held in lieu of $750,000 bond in the Benton County jail. She is charged with capital murder and tampering in connection with the death of her grandmother.

Circuit Judge Robin Green set Wilson's second bail at $100,000.

Ruby Ross, 81, was found dead May 16 in her Pea Ridge home. Wilson is accused of hitting her with a hammer, according to court documents. Wilson has pleaded innocent.

Wilson is scheduled to appear in court again July 16.
