By: Brittany Grove

NORWICH – A woman was sentenced to prison for shooting at her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend while under the influence of methamphetamine.

On the afternoon of August 1, 2013 at a residence in McDonough, 50-year-old Connie B. Hendrickson was arrested for shooting a rifle and firing six shots at her ex-boyfriend 47-year-old Glenn O'Connor and his new girlfriend 30-year-old Kimberly Haughton while they were in Haughton's vehicle.

Hendrickson was involved in a domestic dispute with O'Connor and Haughton and had been using methamphetamine before firing the shotgun.

While no one was injured during the dispute, court records indicate that three of the rounds struck Haughton's vehicle.

Hendrickson was charged two felony counts of attempted assault in the first degree, two counts of felony reckless endangerment first degree and two misdemeanor counts of menacing in the first degree.

She was also charged with the misdemeanor of criminal possession of controlled substance in the seventh degree for unlawfully possessing three ounces of methamphetamine.

Story Continues Below Adverts

On Oct. 10, 2014, Hendrickson pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment before Chenango County Court, and on May 15, 2015, she reappeared in County Court for sentencing.

“This defendant is being sentenced for shooting at the alleged girlfriend (Haughton) of her boyfriend (O'Connor). There is also relationship between the defendant and [Haughton],” said District Attorney Joseph A. McBride.
