Hoffman was shot eight times on Friday at his grandmother's home in West Bloomfield Township. He called 911 to say he had been shot. He was taken to a nearby hospital but was dead upon arrival. No bond was set for Layne after she was arraigned on Monday.
She is held at the Oakland County Jail and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday for a preliminary examination.
Hoffman had been living with his grandparents so he could stay in Farmington schools while his divorced parents settled in Arizona, said his father, Michael Hoffman, of Scottsdale, Ariz.
Jerome Sabbota, a lawyer for the grandmother, said Jonathan Hoffman had legal problems over drugs and had conflicts with his grandmother. Sabbota said his client fired her new .40-caliber semiautomatic handgun because she felt she had no choice.
