The woman who was allegedly shot by her son earlier this month has been identified as a 48-year-old woman.
The Clark County coroner identified the victim as Julia Bowen-McDonald of Las Vegas.
Police were called just before 2 a.m. June 5 to a home near Decatur Boulevard and Windmill Lane after a man called police to say his mother had shot herself, according to a Metropolitan Police Department report.
After further investigation, including the confiscation of the man’s phone, Alexander McDonald was charged with murder Wednesday.
Bowen-McDonald’s cause and manner of death are still pending from the coroner’s office.
