BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - A Calhoun County man charged with wounding his mother has entered a plea in the case.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports (https://bcene.ws/1paElFs ) David Siefert pleaded no contest Thursday to assault with intent to murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Authorities say the 39-year-old shot his mother, Patricia Siefert, at their home in Sheridan Township near Albion on Aug. 24.

A no-contest plea is not an admission of guilt but is treated as one for sentencing.

Patricia Siefert says she woke up when her son began shooting at her with a .22-caliber rifle, apparently angry because she asked him to mow the lawn the day before. She was treated for a bullet wound to her shoulder.

David Siefert will be sentenced Dec. 1.
