WASHINGTON CITY, Utah — A 28-year-old woman accused of brutally killing her parents in their home is now facing 11 felony charges, including 10 first-degree felonies.

Mia Bailey was charged Friday in 5th District Court with two counts of aggravated murder, a first-degree felony. Prosecutors note in charging documents, however, that “the state is not seeking capital punishment. Accordingly, aggravated murder is not a capital felony. Aggravated murder is punishable by an indeterminate prison term of not less than 25 years and which may be for life, or life in prison without parole.

“The state hereby submits this notice of its intent to not seek the death penalty,” prosecutors wrote.

Bailey is also facing charges of attempted aggravated murder, aggravated burglary and six counts of discharge of a firearm causing serious injury, all first-degree felonies; and one more count of discharge of a firearm, a third-degree felony.

Bailey legally had her name and gender changed last year in 5th District Court from Collin Troy Bailey, according to court records.

She is accused of driving to the home of her parents, Joseph and Gail Bailey, at 1039 E. Chinook Drive in the city of Washington, on Tuesday, walking in uninvited and immediately shooting her parents multiple times.
