A judge raised the bond for a convicted murderer now accused of killing her boyfriend.

Linda Dorsey, 55, faced a judge Tuesday morning for the deadly shooting of Harold Bacon. Investigators say Dorsey admitted she shot her 64-year-old boyfriend during an argument over the weekend.

According to court documents, Dorsey shot Bacon at about 1am Saturday, but didn't call 911 until nine hours later, after cleaning up the crime scene. She at first claimed he collapsed, but detectives say she later admitted to shooting Bacon, who investigators say had been bound with duct tape around his arms and feet.

Prosecutors say Dorsey shot Bacon when he came over, angry that she hadn't answered his phone calls. But when she finally did call 911, prosecutors say she told the operator her boyfriend had collapsed. It wasn't until hours later that they say she confessed to killing him.

Dorsey served 15 years for the 1987 killing of her then husband, Alfidio Cardenas.

She is being held in the Harris County Jail on an $80,000 bond.
