Mother & daughter appear in court

A mother and daughter charged with murder were in a Whitley County Courtroom Wednesday.

Patricia Lawson and Michelle Loy are charged with killing Lawson's mother, 76-year-old Georgia Dotson.

At first, police thought Dotson may have fallen, but an autopsy later showed she died from blunt force trauma and the injuries had been covered with make-up.

A trial is set for January 24th.
