LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The woman charged in a year-old murder case was found inside her home on Wednesday night, unresponsive and was taken to a Stephenville hospital and in the Intensive Care Unit.

Authorities went to 60-year-old Carol Nussbaum's home 270 miles away in Stephenville, Texas to serve an arrest warrant for the murder of Paul Brown when they found her unresponsive. A Lubbock grand jury indicted her on the charge Tuesday.

Brown was discovered dead outside an apartment complex, in a pickup truck, in southwest Lubbock in November of 2009. Detectives say he lived there with Nussbaum who was his girlfriend.

The Stephenville Police Chief told us they expect Nussbaum will remain in Intensive Care for a few more days. What let up to her hospitalization has not been released, but the Police Chief told KCBD NewsChannel 11 that it will not be investigated.

Nussbaum's attorney, Dan Hurley, tells KCBD NewsChannel 11 that his client is the victim of domestic violence. He says Nussbaum is doing ok and it is up to the doctors when she will be released from the hospital. Hurley also says he was disappointed someone made the decision to arrest her when he told authorities she would surrender.
