Wehmas will serve at least 72 months in prison for shootings

Stephanie Ann Wehmas

A young Park Rapids mother will spend at least 72 months behind bars in the shootings of two men in Hubbard County at a rural cabin last summer.

Stephanie Ann Wehmas, 21, was sentenced to 110 months in prison today. She must serve at least two-thirds of that sentence with good behavior before becoming eligible for supervised release.

She pled guilty to two counts of First Degree Assault. Two counts of attempted murder were dismissed in a plea agreement.

Cody Allen Paulson, 19, received a gunshot wound to his upper thigh and Jason Howard Walker, 22, was shot in the hand in the domestic incident June 16, 2008. Paulson is the father of Wehmas' two children.

The Minnesota Department of Corrections will determine whether Wehmas will be allowed visitation from her children during her incarceration.
