Ms. Billquist, 43, had been walking her dogs in a field near her home when she was struck in the hip by a bullet fired by Mr. Jadlowski, officials said.In announcing the charges, which carry a potential prison sentence of five to 15 years, the authorities in Chautauqua County — about 65 miles southwest of Buffalo — reiterated that they had no reason to believe that Mr. Jadlowski had intended to harm Ms. Billquist.
