Teacher indicted on attempted murder charge

SWAMPSCOTT — A Lynn teacher arrested in September after allegedly running down her estranged husband’s new girlfriend has been indicted.

Kimberly English, 49, of Swampscott, will now face charges that include attempted murder, violation of a restraining order, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and driving to endanger, in Salem Superior Court.

The charges stem from an incident outside her former home on Magnolia Road on Sept. 10. The victim was carrying groceries when she was struck by a car, allegedly driven by English, who had left work early that day without telling anyone at Lynn’s Ingalls School where she was going.

English, who was held in custody after her arrest after being deemed a danger to the public, is no longer teaching at the school.

An arraignment date has not been set.

She could be facing up to 20 years in prison on the attempted murder charge.
