ROCKINGHAM — A Richmond County woman is facing a slew of felony and misdemeanor charges related to an alleged assault on two people and reportedly trying to burn her neighbors’ home last week.
According to warrants, 46-year-old Jacqueline Susan King Lynch hit a man in the back of the head with closed fists and struck him twice with a four-door Saturn with Virginia plates on May 23.
Lynch is also accused of hitting a woman with her fists and threatening to kill her, as well as trying to burn her neighbors’ home while three people — none of whom were the other two alleged assault victims — were inside.
Warrants show the address for Lynch and the site of the alleged attempted arson on Cabin Cove Road, which could not be found on a map. However, investigators with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office say it’s off of Graham Bridge Road.
The warrants do not go into detail on seriousness of the victims’ injuries.
Lynch was arrested and is charged with two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and one count attempted first-degree arson.
She is also charged with three misdemeanor counts of assault and battery and two counts each of assault with a deadly weapon and communicating threats.
She is being held in the Richmond County Jail under a $250,000 secured bond, a $25,000 secured bond and a $10,000 unsecured bond for the various charges. Records show her court date is scheduled for June 10.
None of Lynch’s charges appeared on the N.C. Court System website Wednesday afternoon.
Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction show Lynch was convicted on five counts of misdemeanor forgery in 1996 and driving while impaired in both 2010 and 2014.
All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
