SOUTHINGTON — The case of a Wallingford woman charged with assault after an incident at South End Elementary School is scheduled to go to trial next month.
Melinda Fisher, 30, of Wallingford, is charged with first-degree assault and attempt to commit first-degree assault.
Fisher pleaded not guilty to the charges and is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on Feb. 21 for trial, according to the state judicial website.
Fisher, a part-time school technology assistant at the time, was confronted by her supervisor in April 2016 when she arrived late for work, according to police. Fisher responded by kicking the supervisor and trying to bang the supervisor’s head against a wall, police said.
Fisher disputed the police account, telling the Record-Journal that she pushed the supervisor, but didn’t try to hit her head against a wall.
