New Charges Against Hastings Woman For Shooting Portage Woman
A Hastings woman accused of shooting another woman last Thursday in Portage is now facing new charges after the victim died Saturday.
In a press release, the Kalamazoo County Prosecuting Attorney announced that Theresa Lynne Petto will now be facing charges of Open Murder, Felony Murder, Attempted Unlawful Imprisonment and 3 charges of felony firearm use in the June 24 shooting of Rachel Drafta.
Authorities say that Petto and Drafta got into an argument near French Bay Drive in Portage, which led to Drafta sustaining a single gunshot wound.
Petto is expected to be arraigned on these new charges later today.
