Mary Mason

Mary E. Mason, the 61-year-old Franklin County woman that was being held under a $1 million bond following a shooting at a residence on Highway 130 May 31, 2012, has been released from jail after her bond was lowered. Mason, 61, of 9321 Old Tullahoma Hwy., was charged with Criminal Homicide following the shooting death of Eules D. Wimley, 71, of 1884 Post Oak Road, Belvidere. According to Franklin County Sheriff Tim Fuller, deputies received a call of a domestic disagreement at the residence. When they arrived they found the two standing in the yard talking and Mason had a weapon. As the officers approached the pair, the woman fired multiple shots and Wimley collapsed. Deputies and ambulance personnel administered first aid in an attempt to revive the man, but at 9:20 pm he was pronounced dead at the scene. Mason made the reduced bail amount of $100,000 and is now set to appear before General Sessions Judge Tom Faris on August 9.
