Charges were dropped Tuesday against a Hurricane woman charged in the shooting death of her 82-year-old mother.

A 5th District judge dismissed charges against Ilo Marie Grundberg, 58, who was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Mildred Coats.Attorneys for the state made a motion for dismissal and it was granted with no opposition from the defense attorneys.

Their defense was that Grundberg, who had undergone evaluation at the Utah State Hospital, was involuntarily intoxicated by the drug Halcion.
