A Boulder Hill woman has been charged with two felonies in connection with a June shooting in unincorporated Aurora Township, the Kane County Sheriff’s office announced Monday. Jeanette M. Lyte, 35, of the 0-99 block of Pueblo Road, was charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, Sheriff’s deputies said.

No arrests were made at that time, according to police. Lyte is being held at the Kane County Jail, on $75,000 bond, police said.
