New charges laid over boil-up shooting
A central Newfoundland man has appeared in court on new charges laid over an incident in which a woman enjoying a day in the woods was shot.
Corey Blake, 36, was charged after a woman was shot in the shoulder while she was out for a boil-up in the Lewisporte area.
Blake, who lives in Embree, appeared in provincial court in Gander Tuesday on charges that had already included criminal negligence causing bodily harm and careless use of a firearm.
The Crown has now added three charges under the Wildlife Act, including hunting moose without a licence, possessing a firearm without a game licence and discharging a firearm from a vehicle.
Blake is scheduled to appear in court again in November.
The shooting victim needed surgery to repair her shoulder.
