Man Who Shot and Wounded Woman Near Pelican Rapids is Sentenced
FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (KVRR)– A man who pleaded guilty to attempted murder and burglary for shooting a woman who had a protection order against him near Pelican Rapids, is sentenced to 15 years in prison.
36-year-old Phoutthasa Prathane fled after the shooting in April but was later arrested following a high-speed pursuit in Redwood County, Minnesota.
