Adele Bing arrested after shooting daughter through front door

Adele Bing arrested after shooting daughter through front door
Winter Haven, Florida -- "A Winter Haven mother has been arrested after police say she shot and killed her adult daughter in an apparent case of mistaken identity.

According to police, 52-year-old Adele Bing had gotten into a heated argument with her boyfriend earlier on Monday. During the fight, Bing allegedly hit 39-year-old James Lane in the head with a gun."

"Bing says that Lane left the home, but not before he allegedly told her he'd come back and kill her later.
Shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday, Bing says she heard "banging" and "kicking" at her front door. Fearing her boyfriend had returned, she opened the door while holding a .22 caliber pistol in one hand and a baseball bat in the other.

As she opened the door, the gun discharged and struck the person on the porch: her 25-year-old daughter Ruby Bing, who was holding her own 4-month-old baby."

Ruby Bing died from her injury, a shotgun wound to the chest. Adele has been charged with second degree murder.

"How can I look my grandkids in the face and say I killed their mother," police quoted Bing, "Y'all can lock me away for good".
A witness described seeing the young woman bleeding from the nose and mouth as she lay dying on her mother's front porch.
Adele Bing rushed to her side, cradling Ruby's lifeless body and begging her to 'wake up.'

Ruby Bing is survived by her newborn daughter, a grade school-age son and a baby boy just days away from his first birthday.
