6-28-14 attempted homicide charge dismissed against fdl woman

A Fond du lac woman convicted of attempting to kill her six year old daughter and injure her boyfriend no longer faces an attempted homicide charge.  On Friday Fond du Lac County Circuit Court judge Robert Wirtz dismissed a charge of attempted first degree intentional homicide against Kenna Bowe.  Bowe is still scheduled to go on trial August 4th  on a charge of first degree recklessly endangering safety.   Bowe was serving a 14 year prison sentence when she withdrew her no contest plea  in February.   She was also granted supervised visitation with her daughter.   According to court records a toxicology expert testified at a post conviction motion hearing in December that the victim could not have died from the amount of narcotics administered.   According to a criminal complaint Bowe forced her young daughter to swallow what doctors descriobed as a potentially lethal dose of sleeping pills and attempted to stab her live-in boyfriend.  The child survived and the boyfriend received superficial wounds to his hands.  Police say Bowe was depressed because she had lost her job and was breaking up with her boyfriend.  She had no prior criminal record.
