Utah woman sentenced to 30 years in NV shooting


ELKO, Nev. — A Utah woman has been sentenced to 30 years in prison in the shooting of a woman during a botched carjacking in Nevada.

Elko County District Judge Nancy Porter imposed the sentence Thursday on 27-year-old Angela Hill of Sanpete County, Utah, who will be eligible for parole after serving 11 years.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports Hill was ordered to remain in the county jail until co-defendant Logan McFarland’s trial, which is scheduled to start Jan. 14. Hill will be named as a witness.

Hill earlier pleaded guilty to burglary, kidnapping and robbery in the Dec. 31 wounding of 36-year-old Rattanaphorn Keomanivong in West Wendover.

After the victim fought off Hill and tried to speed away, she was shot in the head and hospitalized.

Hill maintained she was not the shooter.

Hill and McFarland also are persons of interest in the slayings of 70-year-old Leroy Fullwood and his 69-year-old wife Ann. They were found dead Dec. 31 at their home in Mt. Pleasant, Utah.
