A judge on Thursday rejected a motion arguing that a former Las Vegas police detective accused of shooting and killing her former son-in-law was wrongfully imprisoned and ordered her case to continue.
Pamela Bordeaux, 55, appeared in District Court before Judge Valerie Adair, who denied her petition for a writ of habeas corpus.
Authorities have said Pamela Bordeaux shot 32-year-old Sean Babbitt on the morning of April 22 as he wrapped up an hourlong visit with his 3-year-old son at her home on the 8500 block of Honey Vine Avenue.
Adair said it was clear that there was intent behind the shooting — Babbitt was shot 10 times in the head, torso and hands.
In an earlier hearing, Chief Deputy District Attorney Michelle Fleck called the shooting “a completely unprovoked attack” and “an absolute ambush, an absolute execution.”
Her trial is scheduled for February 2020.
