A St. Joseph man will be heading to prison after coming to a plea deal with prosecution.
James Mueller was facing seven felonies after an incident when he allegedly shot a woman during a domestic disturbance. The woman’s wounds were severe enough that she was left tin intensive care. Another victim was allegedly shot in the arm.
Mueller was originally charged with one count of first-degree domestic assault, two counts of armed criminal action, one count of first-degree assault, two counts for possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of a firearm. With the plea deal reached all but two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of a firearm were dropped.
The plea deal that was accepted suggests a sentence of 14 years in prison on the three charges, but final sentencing will be left to Judge Dan Kellogg.
