LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) -- A Lawrence woman accused of throwing hot cooking oil onto another woman she thought was having an affair with her boyfriend has been ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing.
Judith Medina was arraigned Wednesday on charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Police say the 45-year-old Medina threw the oil at 22-year-old Maria Mejia on Saturday during an argument at the apartment of Randy Serrano.
