Judge Drops Capital Murder Charge Against Terschueren

HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- After Thursday's hearing, Suzanne Terschueren now faces one fewer charge as the judge dropped the attempted capital murder charge against her.

During Thurday's proceedings, the judge watched the dash-cam footage form the day of the incident in question where she was alleged to have tried to hit an officer with her car.

The court room couldn't see the footage, but in the video, Terschueren was repeatedly saying, "I'm going home."

After watching all the footage, the judge dropped the charge because he believed it looked like the police officer threw himself in front of the car.

Terschueren also waived her right to a preliminary hearing on Thursday

There were reports of wine bottles being in the vehicle, along with wine in a travel mug sitting in the center console.

Terschueren's argument for getting bond was so she could be there for her daughter's senior year of high school; however, she is still being held without bond and her next court date will be August 18.
