Her son, Rahmael Sal Holt, was sentenced to death in November after he was convicted of first-degree murder in the slaying of Officer Shaw. He was fatally shot after an attempted traffic stop on Nov. 17, 2017.

Rahmael Holt's father is also in jail.

Gregory Baucum Jr., is charged with threatening or intimidating witnesses in his son's murder trial.
