OSWEGO — An Oswego woman was arrested Thursday and charged with 2nd-degree attempted murder and other charges in a connection with an alleged incident that occurred Dec. 14 in the town of Minetto.
In addition to the attempted murder charge, Ramona Cooper, 38, of Oswego, was charged with 1st degree attempted assault, 2nd-degree assault, 4th-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and 2nd-degree menacing, according to a press release from the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office.

Cooper was to be arraigned in Oswego County CAP Court on Thursday afternoon.
