Woman accused of shooting her father over molestation allegations now faces attempted murder charge

TAMPA — A woman who shot her father and then herself is being charged with attempted murder, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

On July 23, Lisa Nelson, 34, is accused of shooting her father, Jerry Ahedo, in the abdomen and arm before shooting herself in the chest.

According to a search warrant for the Town 'N Country house, someone called 911 in the middle of the attack and never spoke into the phone. Before shots were fired, operators heard a woman screaming about how her father molested a young relative.

"You shouldn't have molested," Nelson screamed, court records state.

"Oh, my God, I love you" the man said as he gasped for air.

Ahedo and Nelson were transported to St. Joseph's Hospital in critical but stable condition. No charges were filed until the two could recover and answer questions about the incident.

According to the sheriff's office, Nelson was arrested upon her release from the hospital.

The young relative told detectives she was sexually assaulted by Ahedo, 65, over a three-year period. Records state that she did not report the crime to family members. Deputies are investigating the allegations. So far no charges have been filed against Ahedo.
