AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - An Augusta County woman is going to prison for shooting her great nephew.

Seventy-year-old Mary F. Puffenbarger appeared in Augusta Circuit Court for sentencing Tuesday, August 13.

Authorities arrested the Mount Solon woman back on April 26, 2018. She had shot her then-40-year-old relative in the leg when he went on her property on Dividing Ridge Road.

Puffenbarger was found guilty of malicious wounding earlier this year. Tuesday, a judge sentenced her to three years behind bars.
