Ax attack charges dismissed
DARLINGTON - A Browntown woman facing up to life in prison for allegedly attacking her then-boyfriend with an ax had her charges dismissed Wednesday. Brandy Marie Smithey, 33, was charged in 2015 with a Class A felony count of first-degree intentional homicide and related charges of aggravated battery and bail jumping after an altercation in a South Wayne residence Feb. 4, 2015. However, at what would have been her sentencing hearing Wednesday, Green County Circuit Judge James Beer approved a motion to dismiss all of Smithey's charges after a forensic investigator determined that the alleged victim's injuries were not consistent with injuries inflicted by an ax.
