The conviction of a Homer man who shot his ex-girlfriend in Marshall just over three years ago has been upheld.

The Michigan Court of Appeals released their opinion Tuesday in the conviction of Brett Baldridge, who was found guilty of assault with intent to murder and home invasion in 2016. The charges stem from an incident on Christmas Eve 2014, when Baldridge broke into his former girlfriend’s home, shot her in the leg and fled.

Baldridge’s appeal involved the sentencing for both charges being laid consecutively instead of concurrently, and the intent behind the assault charge. The Court of Appeals agreed with the Calhoun County Court decision on both counts.

Baldridge was sentenced to 32-to-40 years behind bars.
