A vigilante mother who shot her son's alleged molester in a Tuolumne County courtroom has died.
Ellie Nesler died Friday after fighting breast cancer for several years.
She made international headlines in a Jamestown courtroom in 1993 when she fired five rounds into the head of camp counselor Daniel Driver who was accused of molesting her then 6-year-old son, Willie.
Nesler was sentenced to 10 years and her case was overturned for jury misconduct.
In 2006, Nesler went on a crusade to free her son, who was also convicted of killing a man.
Nesler was frail and bald at the end of her life from her battle with cancer.
The case became a 1999 TV movie, "Judgment Day: The Ellie Nesler Story."
