wapato attempted murder

YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to nearly 42 years in prison for his role in the shooting of a woman who was left for dead in the Wapato area.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports a jury found Freddy Munoz Razo guilty of attempted murder and kidnapping in the June 2016 attack on Amy McGee, who was taken to the area by Razo and two other men, shot in the back of the head and abandoned. She was found alive five days later.

McGee testified that Daniel Perez fired the shot. Prosecutors said Razo had beaten McGee with a rock-filled bag.

Perez entered an Alford plea to kidnapping and assault. Another accomplice, Brandon Honeycutt, pleaded guilty to assault in return for his testimony against Razo.

McGee's mother, Mary Livingston, said the attack left her daughter with no peripheral vision, a titanium plate in her skull, most of her teeth broken and difficulties walking.

Razo insisted there was no evidence that linked him to the killing.
