WHITE CLOUD, Mich. — A Newaygo County woman accused of murdering her husband will head to trial, but not before she shouted angrily as she was being hauled out of the courtroom.

After a second day of preliminary testimony, the judge determined there was enough evidence to send Glenna Duram to trial for the murder of her husband Marty in May 2015.

Both Marty and Glenna were found in their bedroom by a neighbor.  Marty had been shot five times, including one wound to the head.  Glenna had also been shot and suffered a critical injury, but survived.  Investigators believe that Glenna killed Marty and then tried to take her own life.

The case was also remarkable for video that surfaced of Marty's parrot, while in the care of his ex-wife Christina Keller, after his death.  The parrot, named Bud, starting ranting and saying "Don't ****** shoot!"

The couple had apparently been having money and gambling issues.

After the judge issued his ruling and she was being led from court, Glenna yelled out angrily at family that were gathered in the courtroom.

The preliminary hearing began on Dec. 2 and was adjourned to continue Dec. 13.
