Man charged with attempted murder in Willow shooting

December 31, 2018

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A man who fired shots after a road rage event nine months ago in Willow has been charged with attempted murder.

KTUU reports 26-year-old William Stephens also is charged with felony assault.

The April 3 shooting left 26-year-old Trent Wohlers paralyzed.

Stephens is represented by the public defender’s office, which does not comment on pending cases. A message left with the Palmer public defender’s office Monday was not immediately returned.

Alaska State Troopers say Wohlers and Stephens’ girlfriend at the time engaged in a road-road incident and the woman stopped at the Sunshine Clinic in Willow, where Stephens was parked.

Wohler told investigators that Stephens approached with a shotgun and that he took it away.

Wohler said he returned to his car, started to drive off and Stephens shot him.
