LEWISBORO, N.Y. The case of a 78-year-old Lewisboro man who allegedly shot his neighbor in the back of the head last month has been adjourned to June 25.
Richard Wilson appeared Monday night before Lewisboro Town Justice Susan Simon, who continued the case for another two weeks.
According to Court Clerk Elizabeth DeFarber, Wilson did not enter a plea because local courts cannot dispose of felony charges. Wilson was returned to Westchester County Jail, where he is being held on $50,000 cash bail.
Wilson was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, a class D felony, after police said he shot his neighbor in the back of her head May 24 on Sunny Ridge Road in the Lake Katonah section of Lewisboro. The woman was treated at Northern Westchester Hospital for injuries that police said were non-life threatening.
State troopers arested Wilson three hours after the shooting at the Goldens Bridge shopping center. Police said a search of Wilson's residence resulted in the seizure of a quantity of firearms, including two unregistered handguns and a large quantity of ammunition.
New York State Police Investigator James Stirpe said no motive for the shooting has been determined and said more charges may be pending.
We are still waiting for the ballistic test results, he said. After that, we will consult with the DAs office and we could file more charges.
