Woman Indicted in Quadruple Liberty Killings

PICKENS, S.C. (AP) _ A grand jury in Pickens County has indicted a woman on four counts of murder in the deaths of her relatives. Solicitor Walt Wilkins said the indictments were handed down Tuesday against 48-year-old Susan Hendricks. Hendricks was arrested about a week after two of her sons, her ex-husband and her stepmother were found shot to death in neighboring homes in Liberty in October. Deputies said Hendricks tried to frame one of her sons by placing the gun used to kill all four of them on a nightstand beside his bed and leaving behind a note. Prosecutors have said Hendricks killed her relatives because she wanted to collect $700,000 in life insurance policies. Wilkins has not said if he will seek the death penalty.
