Pennsylvania Judge Sonya M. McKnight, 57, finds herself behind bars for attempted murder and aggravated assault, stemming from a tumultuous breakup with her boyfriend, Michael McCoy.

McCoy’s attempt to end their relationship took a dark turn when he discovered McKnight had surreptitiously made a copy of his house key. Despite repeated requests for her to leave, McCoy was startled to find McKnight comfortably settled on his couch, nonchalantly enjoying cereal the following day.

The situation escalated when McCoy, in desperation, threatened to involve McKnight’s mother. Unfazed, McKnight responded with a sinister act, shooting McCoy during the night and attempting to pass it off as self-inflicted. The police, however, discovered gun residue on McKnight’s hands, exposing her role in the violent incident.

This disturbing incident is not the first time McKnight has resorted to such extreme measures. In 2019, she faced accusations of shooting her estranged husband in the genitals but was ultimately cleared of charges.

Tragically, McCoy now grapples with permanent consequences as he has lost vision in one eye due to McKnight’s violent actions. McKnight’s pattern of resorting to firearm violence underscores the seriousness of the charges against her, as she now faces the legal repercussions of her alarming behavior.

The victims in these instances, thankfully, survived McKnight’s violent outbursts.
