    Pediatrician Faces Trial in Domestic Partner's Shooting

    A Philadelphia pediatrician has been held for trial for shooting her former domestic partner and narrowly missed their 11-year-old son on Memorial Day.

    Lauren Patricia Daly, 41, is charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault and other counts in connection with the Memorial Day shooting.

    On May 27, police say Daly shot the woman, in the presence of her 9-year-old daughter, through the windshield of a car while their 11-year-old son sat in the passenger seat. The woman was shot three times, once in the face and twice in the torso. The children were not injured, according to police.

    Magisterial District Judge Walter Strohl held Daly for trial Tuesday. A doctor at A.I. du Pont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del., she's being held on $2 million bail.

    Her attorney, Michael Malloy, says there was an argument over a custody agreement. He says there was "a lot more going on." Authorities say Daly was upset about not being able to speak with her son.

    Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden filed a petition Wednesday to have Daly's license suspended immediately.
