Mount Pleasant woman accused of killing father wants bond reconsidered

Brittany Simpson appears in bond court (WCIV)

A 31-year-old Mount Pleasant woman accused of killing her father and hiding the gun in Molasses Creek is expected in court Friday.

Sources inform ABC News 4 that Brittany Simpson wants her bond reconsidered. She was denied bond in May after the death of Robert Simpson at his home in the I'On community of Mount Pleasant.

Simpson lived at the home with her parents.

According to an affidavit, she confessed to officers that she killed her father. In a 911 made after the shooting, you can hear Brittany tell her sister that someone came into the home through the backdoor and shot their father. Her sister said the smell of gunpowder was still in the air and their father was locked in a room. Robert Simpson was shot in the chest.

Records show Brittany was served eviction papers by her parents days before the shooting. Documents also show Brittany struggled with mental health issues for at least 10 years prior to the shooting death of her father.

Local attorney David Aylor has argued Simpson was unemployed prior to the shooting because of a disability.

Simpson is a graduate of Wando High School
