Mother Charged With Wanton Endangerment

{Pikeville, Kentucky}...During a preliminary hearing Thursday, a Kentucky State Police Trooper testified Vanessa Wood and her live-in boyfriend got into a fight at their home in the Marrowbone community of Pike County on January 14th, and each threatened to shoot the other. Troopers say, weeks later, Woods boyfriend brought them a tape showing Wood's standing on the porch of their home firing a hunting rifle near her boyfriend and their two children who were outside. Wood's defense attorney argued she did not fire the gun toward the children. The case was sent to the grand jury. Vanessa Wood is charged with wanton endangerment.
