BELTON — A Bell County grand jury Wednesday indicted a 54-year-old woman who is accused of hitting a former lover in the face with a hammer.

Vivian Ann Watkins was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with an alleged incident in Killeen on Aug. 30.

About 1:30 a.m. the night of the incident, a man heard the sound of glass breaking in the 5900 block of Medina Drive. Armed with a handgun, he went outside to see a woman wearing black pants, a dark shirt and a baseball cap scratching his vehicle with a hammer, according to an arrest affidavit.

The woman, later identified as Watkins, saw him and charged. As the man attempted to shoot her, the weapon misfired. Then the woman struck him in the face and left. The man told police he and Watkins were former lovers.
