GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The woman charged with murder in the November 2016 death of a Greenville County woman will attend a preliminary hearing on Tuesday.

Deputies say 49-year-old Melette Denise Kimbrough was arrested back in May in connection to the murder of Ruby Flamm, a woman who was found shot to death inside of her Greenville County home last year.

Kimbrough was charged with murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

A judge issued a $100,000 surety bond with 24-hour monitoring. Kimbrough must also avoid contact with the victim's family and cannot have a firearm as part of her release.

Flamm's daughter, Rev. Mamie Johnson-Howell, was i the courtroom when Kimbrough was issued bond.

"She was there with my mother as a friend, supposed to be a friend of my mother and stayed with her for a whole week and then decided to kill her on the last day when mother was trying to get her to go home," Johnson-Howell said. "And I just don't think that it was right that she was even able to make bond but I know that in America, everyone has the right to make bond."
