VALE, Oregon -- Two people involved in the attempted murder of a 19-year-old Idaho man have been found guilty by a Malheur County jury.
Erlene Reger and Todd Mulvaine are two of four people accused of trying to kill Ramon Fry on Feb. 29, 2012. Fry was shot twice, once in the head and once in the back, but managed to escape and survive the shooting.
The Malheur County District Attorney’s Office says Erlene Reger was convicted of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and assault in the second-degree. She was ordered to serve 90 months in prison.
Todd Mulvaine was convicted by a jury of conspiracy to commit murder and assault in the second-degree. He must also serve 90 months in prison.
Under Oregon law, they cannot get out of prison early, even for good behavior.
Malheur County District Attorney Dan Norris said they helped conspire to kill Fry, the father of Reger's grandson. He says the Regers did not trust Fry with their grandson anymore.
Norris said during the two-week trial that Mulvaine provided the gun and dug a grave for Fry, while Erlene Reger lured Fry into their garage, where Lester Reger shot him twice.
Lester Reger is charged with attempted murder and will go on trial in Baker County next month.
A fourth defendant, John Fritz, was also in the garage at the time of the shooting. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy and testified against Erlene Reger and Todd Mulvaine, stating they conspired with him in the murder attempt.
