BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia State Police say a Bluefield woman has been charged in the fatal shooting of another woman after their children had argued on a school bus.

State Police spokesman Sgt. Michael Baylous says 42-year-old Judith Kowaleski is accused of shooting 42-year-old Elizabeth Slagle of Bluefield with a handgun on Thursday night. Slagle's body was found along a road in Brush Fork.

Baylous says the women's children had been involved in an argument earlier on a school bus.

A Mercer County Circuit Court clerk says Kowaleski was arraigned on a first-degree murder charge Friday morning. The clerk had no immediate information on what jail Kowaleski was taken to or whether the defendant had an attorney.
