ST. CLAIR COUNTY — Police are being tight-lipped when it comes to details about the arrest of a Holly woman in connection with an October 28 shooting in Capac.
On Sunday, 55 year-old
Jill Day was arraigned on charges of assault with intent to murder and felony firearms but Sheriff Tim Donnellon will not comment on a motive behind the shooting or what connection Day and the victim might have, citing the ongoing investigation.
"Our detective division put a lot of time and effort
into this investigation," Donnellon said on Sunday.
Day was lodged in the St. Clair County Jail on an $800,000 bond. If she
posts bond, Day will be required to wear a tether and give up her passport. According to court documents, she plans to hire her own attorney. On Monday, an emergency motion for bond reduction was filed.
A 49 year-old Capac man was shot while he stood outside of his home around 6 a.m. He had discovered that one of his vehicle's tires had been flattened and soon after, he was struck by two bullets. The man went inside his home and had his daughter call 911.
A 38 year-old Emmett Twp. man was taken in for questioning following the shooting but soon after released by police.
The sheriff's department has not released the victim's identity. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries and released.
Day is scheduled to appear in Judge John Monaghan's district court on Tuesday, Dec. 14.
