WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A woman charged with her sister’s murder will likely stay in jail after making her first court appearance this afternoon.
A judge approved the District Attorney’s Office’s request for restrictions on bond for Joyce Goldberg. She is charged with second-degree murder after investigators say she shot and killed her sister Glenda Bordeaux in Carolina Beach yesterday morning.
If Goldberg posts the $287,000 bond, she will be put under house arrest and electronic monitoring. Goldberg said during her appearance by video from the New Hanover County Jail that she does not expect to be able to post the bond.
The judge also appointed her an attorney after Goldberg applied as an indigent.
Investigators still will not say what led to the shooting.
