CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Casper woman has been sentenced to 12 to 15 years in prison for shooting her husband in the chest.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2f5MWZu ) that Dana Miller on Monday was sentenced to 15 years for attempted involuntary manslaughter and 10 years for assault. The shorter sentence will run at the same time as the manslaughter sentence. She pleaded guilty in July.

Miller was arrested Jan. 3 after she called 911 to report that she shot her husband, Dustin Edward Baer, inside their Casper apartment. Baer suffered a collapsed lung and a severed artery in his neck. He survived his injuries.

Miller has said she shot her husband accidentally after Baer became drunk and started calling her insulting names.
