CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - An Oregon woman has pleaded guilty to carjacking a man in western Wyoming last year.
Jessica Fritts faces a 30-year prison sentence under the plea agreement with federal prosecutors. U.S. District Judge Nancy Freudenthal (FREE'-den-thawl) on Wednesday set sentencing for Aug. 22.
The 36-year-old Fritts and her husband Roy Fritts were arrested near Echo, Utah, in August following a police chase. Police say they were driving a van belonging to a California man found shot and wounded near Flaming Gorge Reservoir in Wyoming.
Federal prosecutor Jim Anderson says Jessica Fritts' plea agreement hinges on her husband pleading guilty to state charges of attempted murder and grand larceny. Anderson says Roy Fritts faces a state sentence of life without parole plus 8 to 10 years for larceny.
