TAYLOR, Mich. — A 49-year-old woman has been arraigned on charges of first-degree murder and using a firearm during a felony in the fatal shooting of a co-worker in a Detroit-area department store.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Sandra Waller appeared Wednesday in Taylor’s 23rd District Court.

The prosecutor’s office says 49-year-old Lorraine Faison, of Allen Park, was shot once in the chest following a brief argument Monday morning at the Burlington store in Taylor.

Waller was arrested at the store, southwest of Detroit. A gun was found in her waistband.

Police have said other employees were at the store at the time of the shooting.

Waller’s probable cause conference is scheduled for Oct. 30. Her preliminary examination is Nov. 6. She remains jailed on a $250,000 bond.
