Indiana Man Pleads Guilty To Trying To Kill Officers

(GARRETT) – A northeastern Indiana man has pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted murder stemming from an exchange of gunfire with two officers.


Forty-two-year-old Joshua D. Mumma of Garrett also pleaded guilty to being a habitual offender under a plea agreement Wednesday in which prosecutors will dismiss an enhancement for use of a firearm against a police officer and charges of dealing in methamphetamine and disarming a law enforcement officer.
The (Auburn) Star reports DeKalb Superior Court Judge Kevin Wallace advised Mumma he could face a sentencing range of 46-100 years.
Prosecutors have said DeKalb sheriff’s Deputy Todd McCormick was shot in his hands during April 10, 2018, shooting following a traffic stop. Garrett Officer Alicia Castro also participated in the stop. Mumma was shot and hospitalized for several weeks.
