LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) - A Longview woman charged with attempted murder in the shooting of her boyfriend entered a not guilty plea Thursday.

Cowlitz County sheriff’s deputies said Eden Taylor called 911 on June 15 to report that she had shot her boyfriend in the arm and leg, The Daily News reported. Responding deputies found him in the home and arrested Taylor, who they say was intoxicated, according to court documents.

The man told deputies that their relationship was going well and he didn’t know why she shot him. Taylor told deputies she shot him because she was “tired of his s—-” and that he was ignoring her. She added that she wouldn’t have shot him if not for her high level of intoxication, according to court documents.

Taylor’s bail is set at $500,000, and she was still held in the Cowlitz County Jail as of Thursday afternoon. She is scheduled for trial on Nov. 10. A no-contact order is in place between her and the man.
