A Carlsbad woman and her gun-range instructor were arrested this week, accused of conspiring in a Sept. 1 sniper attack that injured the woman’s estranged husband and terrified an upscale Carlsbad neighborhood.

Diana Lovejoy, 43, and Weldon McDavid Jr., 49, face charges of attempted murder and conspiracy. They are set to be arraigned on Monday.

McDavid made a brief appearance in a Vista courtroom Friday, where San Diego Superior Court Judge James Mangione agreed to postpone his arraignment so that McDavid could hire his own attorney.

During the short hearing, Mangione ordered both Lovejoy and McDavid held on $2 million bail.
