Utah woman sentenced for shooting in Nevada

Oct 21, 2013

A Utah woman has been sentenced to 30 years in a Nevada prison in the shooting of a woman during a botched carjacking in west Wendover.

27-year-old Angela Hill of Sanpete County, Utah pleaded guilty to burglary, kidnapping and robbery in the wounding of a 36-year-old woman. The victim fought off Hill and tried to speed away, but was shot in the head and seriously injured.

Hill will remain in the Elko County Jail so she can testify in the trial of co-defendant Logan McFarland, scheduled to start in January.

The pair are described as persons of interest in the New Years Eve slaying of 70-year-old Leroy Fullwood and his wife Ann, who were found dead at their home in Mt. Pleasant Utah just hours before the incident in west Wendover.
