Pa. woman accused of shooting boyfriend who rubbed pizza in her face
MILLMONT (AP) — A woman shot her boyfriend because he grabbed her by the hair and “gently smooshed” pizza in her face during an argument, he testified.
Jennifer Boop, 31, of Millmont, was ordered to stand trial on attempted homicide, aggravated assault and other charges after Tuesday’s preliminary hearing, The (Sunbury) Daily Item reported.
Brandon Doan, 34 who lived with Boop and her two daughters from a previous relationship, described the Oct. 12 shooting from the witness stand.
“I grabbed her by the hair and gently smooshed the pizza in her face,” Doan said. “She quickly shot me.”
Doan testified he couldn’t recall why the couple had started arguing but said things escalated after Boop refused to promptly agree to pack up and leave.
Doan said Boop grabbed his .38 Special revolver from its holster on a bedroom dresser and shot him in the upper chest. He spent two weeks in the hospital and still wears a neck brace because bullet fragments are lodged near his spine.
