WASHINGTON, Pa. – A Washington County hairstylist will stand trial on charges that she shot a dissatisfied client in the lower back after a complaint about a hairstyle.
Monique Michelle Reed, 38, of Washington, was held for trial Monday on charges of aggravated assault and reckless endangerment in the shooting of Lauren Newton on March 6.
The 28-year-old Newton, of Washington, testified that Reed had been styling her hair since she was 15 years old.
Newton says she complained after a recent style. She says they got into a tussle, then Reed got a gun and shot her as she turned to leave.
Newton says the bullet will remain in her because doctors say removing it will cause more damage.
