MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – A few days ago, a domestic fight nearly led to the death of her husband. And Friday, Leslie Houston will be in court for her arraignment.

Right now, Houston and her son are charged with aggravated assault. Houston is still behind bars, with an $85,000 bond.

Police say Houston was fighting with her husband, 58-year-old Stephen Houston, Wednesday. She told her 16-year old son to get her gun. Police say the teen got the gun, and shot Mr. Houston in the face.

Hours after the 16-year-old was taken into custody, his mother was charged for reportedly ordering the shooting.

We are still awaiting word on what's happening with Houston's son, but we do know both of them are charged with aggravated assault for now. Houston will be arraigned at 9 a.m. at the Criminal Justice Center Friday.
