CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - An Oregon man has pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder and larceny in the shooting and carjacking of another man in western Wyoming last year.
Roy Fritts, of Union, Ore., entered the plea Tuesday before Sweetwater County District Judge Nena James in Green River.
Fritts faces life in prison without parole when he's sentenced later.
Utah police arrested Fritts and his wife, Jessica Fritts, last August. The couple was driving a van belonging to a California man found shot and wounded near Flaming Gorge Reservoir in southwest Wyoming.
Sweetwater County Attorney Brett Johnson says Fritts admitted in court Tuesday that he shot the victim and took his van.
Jessica Fritts pleaded guilty to carjacking in federal court in June and faces 30 years in prison when she's sentenced later.
