REPUBLIC, Mo. (AP) - A southwestern Missouri man has been ordered to spend at least nine years in prison after pleading guilty to charges that he shot a woman twice in the face during a domestic dispute last December.

Springfield’s KOLR-TV (https://bit.ly/1DVSbyF) reports that 25-year-old Matthew D. Roberts of Springfield was sentenced Tuesday on charges of felony assault, first-degree child endangerment and armed criminal action.

Police said that Rogers and the victim were arguing before Roberts shot the victim with a handgun at close range in front of her 8-year-old child.

The victim was hospitalized and survived.
