MEDFORD, Ore. — A woman arraigned on 30 felony charges just received two more from a grand jury. Medford Police say that Karin Boldt drugged, financially drained, and attempted to kill two senior citizens.

Although Boldt was already charged with felony counts including Attempted Murder, the grand jury added two counts of Assault in the Second Degree. The new charges imply that Boldt unlawfully and knowingly cause physical injury to her victims by means of a dangerous weapon—in this case, opiates or benzodiazepines.

Nine witnesses, including Detective Brandon Amaya with Medford Police, the two victims, an estate attorney, a doctor and registered nurses testified before the grand jury.

Boldt is being held on $1 million bail in the Jackson County Jail, and she may not sell two properties which are currently in her name—which the charges indicate were bought with money manipulated from the two victims.
