Assault Trial Starts Next Week

A Kennard man accused of shooting at his wife and her little girl goes on trial next week.

Authorities charged David Mitchell with aggravated assault. He's accused of firing six rounds at his estranged wife last year on the Fourth of July. One of those bullets hit the woman's daughter in the foot.

Mitchell's trial starts next Tuesday morning in Angelina County. The shooting happened on Highway 59 near Redland.
