    A Massachusetts grand jury has indicted a woman whose DNA linked her to the attempted shooting of a state trooper.

    The Sun Chronicle reports 49-year-old Julie Rabinowitz was indicted on one count of assault with a dangerous weapon. Prosecutors said Tuesday additional charges of assault with attempt to murder and attempted assault with a dangerous weapon were dropped.

    Authorities say Rabinowitz shot at the trooper as he was driving through Mansfield in 2015. The trooper was uninjured.

    Investigators found a rifle and a hat near the scene, and Rabinowitz was arrested in February after investigators tied her to the shooting through DNA.
