Man Accused of Shooting Dad Reaches Plea Deal

ASBURY, Iowa (AP) — An eastern Iowa man has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge in connection with the shooting of his father.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports Anthony Podnar pleaded guilty Thursday to willful injury with a dangerous weapon. The reduced charge is part of a plea deal that includes other gun charges.

Podnar pleaded innocent last month to a charge of attempted murder related to the January shooting of his father, 60-year-old Adam Podnar. Anthony Podnar was arrested at his home in Asbury after his father drove himself to a convenience store and reported being shot in the stomach. The elder Podnar later was treated at a hospital.

Anthony Podnar is scheduled to be sentenced Monday.
