  REPORTING OFFICER'S NARRATIVE(Brief narrative of the facts surrounding the offense and the arrest.)
Middle-aged woman with light hair standing in front of a height chart holding a letter board bearing the name "Brenda Ledbetter"
In custody

At 4:45 p.m., Reporting Investigators (R/Is) Detectives T. Armstrong and S. Murphy arrived at Brenda Ledbetter's residence at 17 Van Buren Avenue to arrest Brenda Ledbetter for the May 11, 2024 murder of Jasmine Ledbetter.

R/Is knocked on the front door of the residence and announced themselves. When the defendant opened the door, R/Is placed the defendant under arrest. The defendant was handcuffed and advised of her rights. Transportation to the Sheriff’s Department proceeded without incident.

At 5:04 p.m., R/Is turned the defendant over to Sheriff’s Department personnel for processing. At all times while in custody, the defendant appeared lucid and coherent. During transport, the defendant was cooperative and seemed to comprehend what was happening to her.

 

  DEFENDANT'S VERSION/REMARKS(What did the defendant say?)

The defendant said she understood her rights, but repeatedly said she did not understand why she had been arrested. The defendant cooperated physically and did not resist in any way.
