A Defiance woman is now facing two charges, including attempted aggravated murder, in connection with a shooting incident last month involving her estranged husband.
44 year old Pauletta Salinas was indicted Thursday by a Defiance County Grand Jury on a list of charges stemming from the incident, including firearms charges.
Salinas is now exposed to a maximum prison term of 11 years on the attempted aggravated murder charge, while the firearm charge carries a mandatory three-year prison term. She also was indicted on a charge of felonious assault, which carries a maximum prison term of eight years.
Salinas is now scheduled for a pre-trial hearing on Aug. 27th.
Her estranged husband, Vincent Salinas, has two domestic violence convictions. Pauletta Salinas, interestingly enough, was convicted of the same offense against him before they were married.
She was convicted of domestic violence in 2002 when her name was Pauletta Wurster.
