A central Iowa woman is facing charges after police say she shot her uncle. Story County Sheriff’s deputies were sent to a rural Maxwell home Monday afternoon and found 66-year-old Dwight Carpenter Jr. suffering from a gunshot wound to the ankle.
Investigators believe his niece, 33-year-old Candace Mosley, shot Carpenter with a 410 shotgun and then fled on a motorcycle. Carpenter was taken to a Des Moines hospital.
Mosley was arrested overnight and booked in the Story County Jail. She’s now facing a charge of attempted murder.
