School kitchen worker accused of threatening coworkers over cookies

Posted: Updated:
NORFOLK, Mass. (WHDH) - A kitchen worker at King Phillip Middle School is accused of threatening her co-workers and having a hit list.

Prosecutors said Wendy Ferris got into a dispute with one of the other kitchen employees when they criticized her baking.

“She came in to the office to get a band aid and started going off about a coworker having to re-bake cookies. She stated to the manager ‘you need to look into another cook because evidently I don’t know how to do my job. I’m thinking about going out to buy an AK-47 and shooting this school up,’” prosecuting attorney Christopher Meade said in court Monday.

Ferris reportedly told coworkers about her list saying one person was in her list and another was at the top of her list.

She also spoke about going to the store and buying ammunition.

Ferris's husband admits his wife was upset about the cookies but said none of the accusations are true.

"No, absolutely not. Never said any of those things, completely made up, completely false," he said.

He also said that his wife legally owns a hand gun but hasn't fired a weapon in 20 years.

In court Ferris denied the allegations and entered a not guilty plea.

“I’m looking forward to getting a thorough review of all the facts and we’re looking forward to working with the School Department and the DA’s office to get to the bottom of the case,” defense attorney Peter Padula said.

The judge ordered Ferris and her husband to turn in the guns. She was also ordered to stay away from the school.

After spending the weekend in jail, Ferris is back home with her family.
