71 Year Old Margaret Camp Charged With Attempted Murder

Four peo­ple were indicted by a Defi­ance County grand jury last week on sep­a­rate first-degree felonies, includ­ing one woman who was hit with an attempted mur­der charge involv­ing her son. 71 year old Mar­garet Camp is now offi­cially charged with attempted mur­der, that’s a first-degree felony, plus felo­nious assault, a second-degree felony. The charges against her come fol­low­ing an inci­dent back in March, when she allegedly shot her own son, 45 year old Gus Camp, at their Hicksville home with a .38 cal­iber revolver. Gus Camp was shot in the abdomen, and was taken to Lutheran Hos­pi­tal in Fort Wayne. He has since recov­ered and is no longer in the hos­pi­tal, but he still has health issues related to the shoot­ing, which appar­ently hap­pened fol­low­ing a ver­bal argu­ment between the two. Mean­while, he no longer lives with his mother, who is free on a $100,000 cash bond.
