ATTLEBORO, Mass. (CBS/AP) — Prosecutors say a DNA sample taken after a woman’s conviction for attacking her ex-husband with a hatchet has linked her to the attempted shooting of a Massachusetts state trooper.

The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office said 49-year-old Julie Rabinowitz was found guilty of attacking her ex-husband in August 2015 at his North Attleborough dental office amid a dispute over custody of their children. He did not suffer serious injuries.
