The Perrysville woman accused of shooting her son-in-law in the face through a door pleaded not guilty to all charges in an indictment on Wednesday afternoon.

Elizabeth A. Sivey, 53, entered the pleas through her attorney, James Mayer. She had been indicted on two felony charges connected to the shooting in Perrysville on March 24. Those charges are felonious assault, a second-degree felony; and aggravated assault, a fourth-degree felony.

Mayer asked Magistrate Paul T. Lange, who was presiding over the hearing, to schedule a trial. Lange set the trial date for Sept. 19 and set a negotiated plea deadline for Aug. 29. A pretrial hearing for 11:30 a.m. Aug. 25 also was set by Lange and will be held in open court.

The indictment handed down by the Ashland County Grand Jury on June 8 alleges Sivey used a Taurus Model 380 handgun to shoot her son-in-law after a domestic dispute on the morning of March 24.

A criminal complaint was filed previously in the case, and a not guilty plea was promptly entered.

Mayer noted his client was out on bond and had been complying with all conditions the court had ordered.
