DETROIT - A jury has acquitted a woman of attempted murder and other felonies while convicting her of a concealed weapon charge for her role in a shootout that left six Detroit riverboat passengers wounded.
The Wayne County Circuit Court jury reached the verdict Monday in the trial of 28-year-old Latoiya Mitchell-Thomas. Sentencing is June 3.
The shootings occurred Aug. 6 on the Detroit River after a fight between a woman and Mitchell-Thomas and her husband Michael Thomas aboard the Detroit Princess.
Authorities say Mitchell-Thomas fired into a crowd from a car after passengers left the boat. Her husband got 2 years' probation at his March sentencing for felonious assault.
Prosecutors say LaDon Richard shot Thomas later that day. Richard is scheduled for trial June 24 on attempted murder charges.
