She told police her husband was the victim of a deadly home invasion but DeKalb police say her story just didn't add up.
Now, Pamela Ballin is charged with felony murder.
Police cited several reasons why her story did not up, saying that her husband Derrick recently took out a $750,000 life insurance policy and that he also learned that his wife had been unfaithful.
Ballin claims she was hiding in fear when her husband was beaten during a home invasion.
Ballin remains in the DeKalb County Jail awaiting a bond hearing.
