“At the request of Crenshaw County District Attorney Charlotte Tesmer, the State Bureau of Investigations is investigating the shooting death,” said Trooper Kevin Cook in a statement issued shortly after the incident.

Tesmer said Harris’ next appearance in court is set for Feb. 4 at 9 a.m. for the appointment of an attorney, if she doesn’t hire one.

“No other court dates are set for her at this time,” Tesmer added.
