Susan Wade, 49, is charged with one count of open murder in the death of her 86-year-old father, Ronald Mason. Wade has been held in police custody without bond since she was arrested on June 9, 2012.
Records show she’s scheduled to be in court for a final pretrial hearing at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in front of Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge Donald Shelton. It’s the last hearing scheduled before Wade’s trial date of June 3.
According to police, Wade stabbed and killed Mason on June 9, 2012, in their home in the 1700 block of Covington Drive in Ann Arbor. Mason was stabbed multiple times while he slept in his bed and again later when Wade believed she saw him moving, according to police.
Wade has a past history of drug abuse and schizophrenia, according to her family. She’s been declared competent to stand trial.
