Helvenston, nineteen, was originally charged with second-degree murder and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony after police say she shot twenty-five-year-old Anthony Sanderlin seventeen times and failed to render aid to the wounded man, repeatedly preventing him from calling for medical assistance. Helvenston's father was one of four Blackwater guards killed in a 2004 ambush in Fallujah.
