2 men plead guilty to robbery, attempted murder

WEST UNION, Iowa (AP) — Two men have pleaded guilty to charges related to a bank robbery and wild chase last fall that left two officers with gunshot wounds.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/11OVqUh ) 25-year-old Jeremiah Mumford and 19-year-old William Clayton pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree robbery and two counts of attempted murder.

Under a plea agreement with prosecutors, both will be sentenced to 50 years in prison — 25 years for robbery and 25 years for attempted murder. They must serve at least 35 years before being eligible for parole.

The charges stemmed from an Oct. 30 robbery of the Maynard Savings Bank in Maynard.

During an ensuing chase, they shot and wounded two officers, both of whom recovered.

They were captured near Frederika about seven hours after the holdup.
