Laura Purviance, 24, of Woodland Hills, was arrested in Oregon last week after she allegedly fatally shot her mother, a former Hart district teacher, in her Woodland Hills home.

Caroline Purviance, 61, of Woodland Hills, who was a special education for the William S. Hart Union High School District, was fatally shot in her home Feb. 13.

Her mother’s body was discovered in the 5600 block of Mason Avenue, where her daughter lived.

Laura Purviance, who was arrested Friday by Oregon State Troopers at a rest stop near Medford, Ore., appeared in a Van Nuys court Wednesday.

She attended Saugus High for a little over year before transferring out of the district.

Her arraignment was put over to March 21 in Department 100.

She is being held in lieu of $2 million bail.

If convicted, she faces up to life in prison.

The case is being prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth Ratinoff.
