Raleigh police said that Watson was shot in the 1300 block of Sawyer Road just after midnight on Saturday morning. Watson was taken to the hospital by car and later died due to her injuries.

Police said that 23-year-old Jordan Sanders and 21-year-old A’Shante Freeman are both facing murder charges in Watson’s death.

The two women had their first court appearance in Wake County Court on Wednesday morning.

The judge presiding over the hearing informed Jordan and Freeman that if they are convicted for the murder of Watson, they could potentially face the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole.
