Woman charged with attempted murder

A Woolwine woman was arrested Sunday, May 17, and charged with three counts of attempted first-degree murder, according to Patrick County Investigator Brian Hubbard.
Denese P. Kendrick, 46, of Iron Bridge Road, Woolwine, was arrested following an incident at Grassy Creek Lane, Patrick Springs, in which she allegedly tried to run over three people while driving a full-size sports utility vehicle (SUV), Hubbard said.
The victims were listed as Cynthia Spence, Kendrick’s sister; James Spence, Kendrick’s brother-in-law, and Brandon Spence, the Spences’ son.
The victims were able to jump out of the way of the vehicle and call 911, Hubbard said.
The four people got into an argument prior to the vehicular attack, according to statements from the victims.
Kendrick is being held in Patrick County without bond.
Deputy Winfred Hill made the initial response to the call, and Hubbard is in charge of the investigation.
