LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The woman accused of murdering Paul Brown, 48, in Southwest Lubbock, will get out of jail between now and when she goes to trial. 

Carol Nussbaum, 60, is accused of killing Brown at the Boulders Of Lakeridge apartment complex.  His body was discovered on November 18th 2009.  Nussbaum's attorney claims the killing was self-defense. 

Nussbaum pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to an unrelated DWI charge that stems from June of 2009.  She agreed to a fine and 180 days in jail with credit for time already served in jail.  Nussbaum agreed to go through an alcohol rehabilitation program as part of the plea bargain. 

She will be allowed to live in Stephenville and if she violates terms of the deal, she can be put right back in jail. 

Her bond on the murder charge was reduced in late January from $250,000 to $50,000.
