MINDEN, Nev. (AP) - A 30-year-old woman has been ordered to stand trial on a charge of open murder in the Dec. 2 shooting death of a man at the Gardnerville home they rented.

East Fork Justice of the Peace Tom Perkins on Friday ruled there was sufficient evidence to try Nicole Followill in the death of 33-year-old Jason Thrift.

Followill told detectives she shot Thrift once in the forehead with a 9 mm Glock handgun as he came at her, but she argued it was justifiable homicide because he was going to kill her.

But a coroner's inquest in January determined that Thrift died by criminal means.

Followill was in the process of kicking Thrift out of the house when the shooting occurred.

Gardnerville's Record-Courier reports Followill will be arraigned April 14 in Douglas County District Court.
