STUTLER SENT FOR 60-DAY EVALUATION - Charged With Attempted Murder

Little Creek resident Harold Stutler, 67, is being sent to Anthony Center for a sixty-day evaluation, following a sentencing hearing yesterday before Judge David Nibert in Calhoun Circuit Court.

During a plea bargain, Stutler (Pictured Left) had plead from first degree attempted murder to second degree attempted murder.

He has been standing trial for shooting at his brother-in-law Richard Starcher last August. Stutler lie in wait along a rural road, pumped several shots into Starcher's truck as it drove by, breaking a window and barely missing Starcher's head.

Yesterday the victim's statement was read and character witnesses appeared before the court suggesting Stutler would be a good candidate for probation.

Details will follow on the hearing ...
