Injured Attorney Moved To Rehab

ATLANTA (WAOK/AJC)-The attorney who survived being shot eight times outside her Sandy Springs apartment has been transferred  to the Shepherd Center from Grady Memorial Hospital, where she had been since the April 20 shooting.

Adina Parson, 40, was shot three times in the head while in the breezeway of her apartment. Her husband, Michael Parson, has been charged in the shooting and is in custody in Texas, according to police.

The Texas Highway Patrol arrested Parson just before midnight Saturday, one day after police announced an arrest warrant had been issued.

He has been charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and giving false statements in writing concealing the facts of a felony, Capt. Steve Rose with Sandy Springs police has said.

A Fulton County Grand Jury is expected to hear the Michael Parson case Friday, Rose said Tuesday. If indicted, Michael Parson could be back in Georgia by early next week, Rose said.

Adina Parson’s family members told reporters she was continuing to recover and was alert since the shooting. A doctor at the Shepherd Center, an Atlanta rehabilitation hospital for people with spinal cord and brain injuries, was expected to speak to reporters about Adina Parson on Tuesday afternoon.
