(Council Bluffs) A Harlan man entered a guilty plea to charges of attempted murder and willful injury causing bodily injury today.
The Council Bluffs Nonpareil says 30-year-old Ronald Farr was sentenced to 25 years in prison. His sentence will run concurrent with a five year sentence for willful injury causing bodily injury. Farr was originally charged with three counts of attempted murder, two counts of willful injury causing bodily injury and one count of going armed with intent.
The shooting occurred at around 5:40 a.m. on February 12, 2013. Farr shot at 22-year-old Heather Wilson while she was putting her son and daughter in the car. Wilson suffered multiple gunshot wounds and her infant son suffered a gunshot wound to his lower right arm. The incident allegedly occurred over a $6,000 tax return that Wilson’s fiancé, Nathan Underwood, refused to return to Farr. The money was to be used for drugs. Underwood was arrested on March 1, 2013 following a search of his apartment. He was arrested on warrants for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, tax stamp violation and three counts of child endangerment.
