Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - News -

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A woman ac­cused of mak­ing threats while hold­ing a gun and her baby dur­ing an Easter Sun­day ser­vice has been or­dered to stand trial.

A San Diego judge or­dered Anna Con­key to face charges, in­clud­ing child en­dan­ger­ment and mak­ing crim­i­nal threats, on Fri­day.

Dur­ing a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing pros­e­cu­tors showed video of Con­key hold­ing her one-year-old son and wav­ing a pis­tol in front of church­go­ers on April 21 as she ram­bled about mar­tyr­dom.

The pas­tor of the Tsid­kenu Church re­acted by urg­ing ev­ery­one to get out.

Wit­nesses were able to dis­arm her and pull the child away from her be­fore po­lice ar­rived.

The de­fense called Con­key “a dis­turbed woman in the mid­dle of a dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tion” and ar­gued she was merely us­ing the un­loaded gun to get the con­gre­ga­tion’s at­ten­tion.
