Fresno woman charged with attempted murder after slamming car into another woman

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Fresno woman is facing attempted murder charges in connection to a targeted collision in southwest Fresno.

Investigators say Monique Cooper was behind the wheel of a car when she slammed into another woman standing in a parking lot on California Avenue and MLK Jr. Boulevard.

The collision happened back in May and was captured on surveillance video.

Cooper was arrested -- and initially charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

But on Thursday, Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz filed an attempted murder charge against her.

The victim suffered a broken vertebrae in her neck and a broken toe in the collision.

Cooper reportedly was friends with a woman who was dating the victim's child's father.

Cooper was out on bond, but Judge Kelley raised her bail today to $660,000 so she was taken back in custody on Thursday night.
