September 6, 2011, 2:28 PM
RAPID CITY, SD -
A South Dakota woman charged with the attempted murder of her husband has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge in exchange for a deal with prosecutors.
Evelyn Hunsaker, of Keystone, faces a maximum penalty of five years in jail and a $10,000 fine at her Oct. 18 sentencing. She had been facing 75 years in prison for the August 2010 shooting of her husband, Michael Hunsaker, in their Keystone home.
Prosecutors dropped the attempted murder charge to a charge of accessory to a felony in exchange for Hunsaker's guilty plea.
Hunsaker's husband also appeared in front of Judge Mary Thorstenson to ask that the restraining order against his wife be dropped. The judge agreed.
