Iowa man gets life in prison for shooting death of wife

August 28, 2019

CRESCO, Iowa (AP) — A northern Iowa man convicted of killing his wife has been sentenced to life in prison.

The Courier reports that 35-year-old Brian Fullhart was sentenced Wednesday for the shooting death of 34-year-old Zoanne Fullhart. Several of her relatives made victim impact statements prior to Brian Fullhart’s sentencing.

Zoanne Fullhart’s mother, Jo Olson, said her daughter was beautiful “outside and inside,” and that Brian Fullhart was “ugly on the outside and inside.”

Prosecutors say Brian Fullhart killed his wife because she planned to leave him.

Police say he forced Zoanne Fullhart to kneel in the back room of a friend’s mobile home on Feb. 28, 2018, and he shot her in the head. He then police at bay for five hours — and shot arrows at officers — before surrendering.
