Hello, 911? I would like to report

Reportedly Gus Brown III, 43, and Mona West, 42, had only moved in together a couple of months ago. And reportedly Brown had gone to visit a friend Monday evening.

Allegedly he returned about 11:30 pm. And West shot him. West has told authorities that she then went and sat on the river bank for hours while she tried to decide what to do.

She then went to a friend’s house and called the sheriff’s dept. about 6:30 am. Deputies met her at a service station, and placed her under arrest.

At the home, they found Brown in a bedroom, dead from gunshot wounds to his head and back.

No motive is known for the murder, other than he went to a friends house.

West is being held on intentional homicide charges.




Somehow I think there may be a story behind this one, but I can’t find where they have written about it. One article says a domestic dispute, but the others don’t say at all.

She was held for a time without charges being filed, then nothing further is written.

    Yeah, I’m with you. I think there is some big pieces of this story missing.

    He was beating her. I wonder how long it’ll be before it comes out in the trial. (Yes, I know her).

    Thank you for letting me know. If you are asking when the trial, it is dependent on her plea. If she makes a plea, it will probably be pretty quick. If it goes to trial, then it will be dependent on the court schedule and the attorney schedules and how many hearings on issues there will be. If you have knowlege of any domestic violence in the home, I would recommend getting in touch with the defense attorney.

    I already have, and so have -lots- of others, all in her defense. Thanks for the suggestion though.
