Oregon woman indicted on murder charge in 2016 shooting

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — A Jacksonville woman charged with manslaughter in the shooting death of her uncle has been indicted on a murder charge.

The Mail Tribune reports 28-year-old Aisling “Tucker” Moore Reed was booked Tuesday into the Jackson County Jail following the grand jury indictment last week.

Moore Reed was initially charged with first- and second-degree manslaughter in the July 2016 death of Shane Patrick Moore in southern Oregon.

Her mother Kelly Moore has previously said the shooting was an act of self-defense.

Prosecutor Marco Boccato says the indictment stemmed from new evidence uncovered in recent months.

Moore Reed is a blogger, author, and one-time reporter at the Grants Pass Daily Courier.
