Barnwell, SC

A Barnwell woman will not face charges for shooting her son after he allegedly threatened her and attacked the mother of his children.
According to Chief Reuben Black, Bettie Ann Newton shot Venson Jones outside her Turner Street home on Saturday, Oct. 22.
Chief Black said that Jones was attacking the mother of his 4 children, 37-year-old Wanda Badger.
According to the incident report, Newton told investigators that he did exactly what he said he was going to do. She told them that Jones threatened to assault her and burn her house down just the day before. She went to the store where Badger worked to let her know what he said. Newton claims that Jones asked for a hammer to bust open Badger's head and kill her, and then carry out his original plan to assault his mother and burn her house down.
