Attempted Murder Case Dismissed in Sessions, Headed to Knox Grand Jury

The prosecutor in an attempted murder case that was dismissed last week when the victim failed to appear in court said he plans to proceed despite the recent ruling, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. Nicholas Walton Boggs is accused of ambushing and shooting at the alleged victim outside of a West Knox County senior living facility where she worked. Knox County Assistant District Attorney General Sean McDermott said the woman recently suffered serious injuries in an automobile wreck in Florida, and he could not guarantee when she might be available to testify. This led General Sessions Court Judge Geoffrey Emery to order dismissal of the charges and Boggs' release. McDermott said he now intends to seek charges from a Knox County grand jury.
