Highway shooting involved debt, romance troubles

Posted: Updated:

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A man and woman will go on trial Sept. 15 on charges of attempted first-degree murder charges in the shooting of another man as he drove on a highway near Lawrence.

Brittany Smith and Edward Parker of Lawrence are charged in the May 26 shooting of Skylar Workman on Highway 59. Workman is recovering from severe injuries.

At the end of a two-day preliminary hearing Thursday, Parker was arraigned and pleaded not guilty. Smith will be arraigned and enter a plea Aug. 15.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1mRHZjY ) that testimony during the hearing indicated Parker was angry that Workman was texting his girlfriend, and that Workman owed money to two of Parker's friends. Workman had once dated Smith, who allegedly told investigators she was still in love with him.
