Brittany Vogeli

NEWPORT — A Lincoln Beach woman was convicted Tuesday of attempted murder, unlawful use of a weapon, animal cruelty and menacing.

Jurors entered deliberations Friday and delivered their verdict shortly after noon on Tuesday, convicting Brittany Vogeli, 31, of second-degree attempted murder of her mother, Cyndi Upton.

Vogeli was also found guilty of two charges of menacing for threatening to kill her son and mother, two unlawful use of a weapon charges, and one count of animal cruelty for stabbing her mother’s dog, LaLa. 

The jury voted 10-2 to acquit on three first-degree attempted murder counts — one for attempted murder of a minor under the age of 14, Vogeli’s son, and two for attempted murder of her mother and her son during the same criminal episode. 

Vogeli was arrested late in the evening on Nov. 29, 2019, at Fogarty Creek RV Park, where she lived with her mother and son.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Oct. 20 before Judge Sheryl Bachart. Vogeli faces a minimum sentence of 90 months for the attempted murder conviction, with no possibility of early release.
