York Twp. woman held in shooting of son, 15

SWANTON — A woman remained in custody Tuesday following an arraignment in Fulton County Eastern District Court on a charge that she shot her 15-year-old son.

Candis Jo Sherman, 57, of York Township is charged with a first-degree felony of attempted aggravated murder in the shooting of Logan Sherman, 15. Authorities said the teenager was shot in the arm and back area and is expected to recover. Fulton County sheriff’s deputies found a revolver at the Sherman residence after responding to the call there Sunday morning.

Authorities have not disclosed a possible motive.

No bond was set for Ms. Sherman at her Tuesday arraignment. The court appointed Delta attorney Amber VanGunten to represent her. Ms. VanGunten could not be reached for comment. Court records indicate T. Luke Jones, an assistant county prosecutor, is handling the case. Mr. Jones also could not be reached for comment.

Ms. Sherman remained lodged at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, near Stryker.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
