The Amy Bishop case has moved into a new phase, according to Nature's The Great Beyond blog. Earlier this month, a grand jury indicted Bishop, who was an assistant professor at the University of Alabama, Huntsville. She is charged with one count of capital murder and three counts of attempted murder in the shootings of her colleagues during a faculty meeting. In Alabama, capital murder is punishable by either the death penalty or life in prison. In addition, a judge, Alan Mann, has been chosen to oversee her trial. The Great Beyond notes that that dates for hearings have not yet been set.
