Craig woman charged with first-degree attempted murder


A 49-year-old Craig woman who allegedly shot her boyfriend last week was advised Tuesday in Moffat County Court on a three-count complaint filed by the District

Attorney's office.

Sandra Moore, who appeared with her public defender via video link at the Moffat County Jail, has been charged with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and prohibited use of a weapon.

Moore faces up to 48 years in state prison if convicted on the attempted murder charge.

Public defender Sheryl Uhlmann said she intended to request a preliminary hearing for her client in Moffat County Court -- while at Uhlmann's request Judge Mary Lynne James will hear arguments for reduced bond April 15.

Moore is being held at the jail on $250,000 bond.

Craig police arrested her Thursday night in a trailer home near her 1679 Yampa Ave. residence after allegedly firing two gunshots at her boyfriend, 48-year-old Ron Wyatt.

Wyatt suffered one wound to the chest and he was still listed in stable condition Tuesday afternoon at The Memorial Hospital.
