Haydee Rivera-Nadeau, 65, faces a second-degree murder charge in connection with the recent death of mother-of-three Lisa Rocheleau, 50.

On May 1, officials claimed, Rivera-Nadeau shot Rocheleau in the head and fled the state. She was apprehended in Charlotte, North Carolina, on a pending attempted murder charge and extradited back to New Hampshire.

Police said the victim had started a new relationship, which Rivera-Nadeau found out about and confronted her before the deadly incident, WMUR reported.

The attempted murder charge was upgraded when Rocheleau, who reportedly was on life support, died from her injuries 10 days later.

Rivera-Nadeau is currently being held without bail in the Strafford County Department of Corrections.

In a GoFundMe, Rocheleau’s loved ones, who refer to themselves as “Lisa’s Army,” called the shooting victim the “most loving, caring selfless woman.”

The fundraiser noted Rocheleau was “tragically taken” from them “after working up the courage to leave a toxic relationship.”
