A Valencia man has been ordered to stand trial on a charge he shot a woman in the eye with a BB gun during a road rage incident in May. a District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman said Thursday.

Cory Allen Flenory, 28, was held to answer in San Fernando Superior Court to charges of mayhem, vandalism causing damage of more than $400 and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, spokeswoman Shiara Dávila-Morales said.

He is scheduled to return to court Tuesday for arraignment on the felony charges.

Prosecutors allege Flenory used a BB gun as a deadly weapon. They also say he has a 2005 felony conviction in Tulare for carjacking, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.

The Tulare case also includes one count of injuring a spouse for an unrelated incident on May 5. That incident also involved a BB gun, D.A. officials said.

In the Santa Clarita Valley case, Flenory allegedly shot one victim in the eye May 17 after a confrontation over a collision in a Walmart parking lot in Stevenson Ranch.

The victim, a photographer, suffered permanent damage to her eye. Surgeons at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center spent seven hours attending to the woman’s injury.

Deputies who arrested Flenory on May 19 used pepper spray to detain him after he allegedly kicked out the window of a sheriff’s car, said sheriff’s Deputy Josh Dubin said. He remains in custody with bail set at $1,275,000.

If convicted as charged, Flenory faces multiple life terms in state prison.
