A man has pleaded guilty to 3 counts of attempted first-degree murder, according to La Paz County Attorney Tony Rogers.
Vincent Marlowe was at the center of a standoff with police at a residence in Ehrenberg, AZ in the summer of 2014. Sheriff’s deputies were responding to a disturbance at the home on August 9th when Marlowe allegedly walked out onto the front porch with a pistol and shot at the deputies, who had to take cover and call for a multi-agency response. After several hours, during which Marlowe was barricaded in the home, according to the Sheriff’s Office, negotiations were determined to have failed and a tactical entry was made around 6:30pm which brought Marlowe into custody.
Marlowe reportedly accepted the plea agreement Monday with a stipulated 9 year sentence and will be in La Paz County Superior Court for formal sentencing on March 7th.
