Garr Arraigned on Attempted Murder Charges

A woman who is accused in the shooting of a Fremont man was arraigned.

Heather Garr had her initial hearing Tuesday on a charge of attempted murder. Attempted Murder is a Level 1 Felony, punishable by 20-40 years in prison. She is accused of shooting her boyfriend Douglas Richter.

Richter was shot in the scrotum, liver, and diaphram with .45 caliber handgun Monday. He remains in critical, but stable condition at a Fort Wayne hospital.

Jim Burns was appointed as a Public Defender to represent Ms. Garr. Her bond was set in the amount of $250,000. A pre-trial conference is scheduled for November 13, 2017 at 1 p.m. in the Steuben County Circuit Court.

Court documents indicate that during Tuesday's arraignment Garr admitted to being in a dating relationship with Richter and described Monday's events as a "blackout". In an interview, Garr said she only remembered argueing and hearing a gun go off, but she didn't remember having the gun in her hand.

As always, a criminal charge is merely an accusation. Ms. Garr is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
