PASCO, Wash. -

A jury has convicted a woman of first-degree murder in the shooting death of her mother in Pasco.

The Franklin County Superior Court jury returned the verdict Wednesday against 40-year-old Tashia Stuart.

Stuart said she shot her 58-year-old mother Judy Hebert at their home in March 2011 after her mom came at her with a hatchet. They had been arguing about money.

The Tri-City Herald reports Franklin County prosecutors also said Stuart had tried to kill her 58-year-old mother a month earlier by dropping a heavy bin of books onto her head.
