The 73-year-old matriarch of the Adelson family, who prosecutors have repeatedly said “hated” her former son-in-law Dan Markel, was arrested in Miami on Monday night, just a week after her dentist son Charlie Adelson was found guilty of the murder plot July 18, 2014, in which the Florida State University law professor died in a contentious custody dispute.

Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rehabilitation records reviewed by Law&Crime show that Donna Sue Adelson was booked into jail on an out-of-county felony warrant last night at 10:08 p.m. It’s not clear from the records what county it is or what charges are being filed, but the arrestee’s 5-foot-10, 110-pound son was charged seven days ago in Leon County with first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and incitement to murder.
