A woman is facing a murder charge for the death of a Sour Lake man whose death was originally thought to have been accidental.
A Jefferson County grand jury Thursday handed up a one-count murder indictment against Alexis Mariah Abbott charging her in the death of William Schroeder.
Schroeder was found dead November 1, 2012 in a hotel room in the 3700 block of college Street in Beaumont. An autopsy showed that Schroeder had overdosed, but investigators found evidence that led them believe his death was a homicide.
Abbott is scheduled for an initial court appearance before 252nd Criminal District Court Judge Layne Walker.
Court records show Ryan Matuska as Abbott's attorney.
