ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - A woman who crashed her car into an Elizabethton Kroger store did the same thing 15 years ago. This time she is being charged with attempted murder.

The News-Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/1fr06p2) 52-year-old June Blocker drove through the front doors of a Kroger on Feb. 5, injuring two people inside.

The indictment charges that Blocker attempted to cause someone’s death “intentionally or under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to human life.”

Blocker faces several other charges, including operating a motor vehicle under the influence of intoxicants.

Fifteen years ago, Blocker drover a car through a different Kroger store. At that time, she was charged with wanton endangerment and criminal mischief.

Blocker is jailed in Hardin County on a $50,000 bond. The jail had no record of an attorney for Blocker.
