The woman who allegedly shot Gregg County Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Sam Lawson was released from a behavioral treatment facility on Friday.

According to her daughter, Ina Lawson was released from a behavioral health facility into the care of her granddaughter on the stipulation that she must be supervised at all times.

Longview police arrested Mrs. Lawson in March after she allegedly shot her husband. Police were told that Mr. Lawson and his wife had been arguing when she retrieved a handgun and allegedly shot Sam Lawson. A probable cause of arrest report says Ina Lawson contacted 911 and told authorities she shot her husband.

"This is not an issue about domestic violence, this is an issue about mental illness. My mom had made threats like this about killing my father for the last 5 or 6 years," said the Lawson's daughter, Debbie Drayden, in March,

Mr. Lawson is still in Dallas in rehabilitation. He is expected to be walking and back home in Longview by the end of May.
