Woman, 18, charged with murder attempt

MOUNT SHASTA — An 18-year-old Yreka woman was jailed on an attempted murder charge stemming from her alleged attack of another 18-year-old woman at a party in the woods near Mount Shasta over the weekend.

Prisinda Susan Millan was arrested Sunday afternoon in Mount Shasta after investigators unraveled the details of an attack that sent a Mount Shasta resident to the hospital with a broken nose and facial injuries, Siskiyou County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Susan Gravenkamp said in a release Monday.

At about 12:50 a.m. Sunday, deputies were called to the emergency room at Mercy Medical Center in Mount Shasta where a young woman was being treated for facial injuries after a fight at a party, Gravenkamp's news release said.

The injured woman told investigators that a group of young people was gathered around a campfire, drinking and talking. A man she identified as Millan's boyfriend grabbed her buttocks and she yelled at him not to do that.

Moments later, Millan approached the young woman, and, without warning, hit her in the face with a rock, knocking her to the ground, investigators said. The woman told police that Millan then kicked her while she was on the ground and jumped on top of her, straddling her body and punching her while calling her names and shouting that she was going to die.

The victim said she must have lost consciousness because the next thing she remembered was being in a friend's car on the way to the hospital.

The woman was treated and has since been released, Gravenkamp said.

Millan remained jailed Monday and authorities expected her to remain lodged until she appears in Siskiyou County Superior Court for arraignment later this week.
