LAS VEGAS -- A 21-year-old metro Phoenix woman and her boyfriend were due in Nevada state court in a Christmas week shooting that left a motorist critically wounded on the Las Vegas Strip.
Brittanie Merritt-Burwell, of Glendale, Ariz., is set for arraignment Wednesday after her indictment last week on attempted murder, battery with a weapon and shooting into a vehicle charges.
She's accused of shooting another motorist in the neck late Dec. 23 in a traffic dispute.
Joshua Youngblood faces a concealed weapon charge, alleging he kept the weapon.
Police said the wounded motorist was treated for critical injuries at University Medical Center.
Merritt-Burwell could face decades in prison if she's convicted.
Youngblood didn't provide a home address.
They were arrested Dec. 30 at a fast-food restaurant in Las Vegas.
