2 daughters’ views differ on 1970s Wyoming slaying

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A daughter of a 75-year-old Missouri woman sentenced to life in prison this week for killing her husband in Wyoming almost 40 years ago says she stands by mother. A judge in Cheyenne on Monday gave Alice Uden the maximum possible sentence, but Erica Hayes maintains the shooting saved her from her stepfather. In May, a jury rejected Uden’s claim she shot Ronald Holtz to protect the then-2-year-old Hayes after Holtz became enraged by the girl’s crying. Jurors accepted prosecutors’ argument that Uden shot Holtz while he was asleep. The jury found the Chadwick, Missouri, woman guilty of second-degree murder. Now 42, Hayes said Wednesday she will support her mother in prison. Holtz’s daughter, Sharon Brock, called Uden in a letter read at Monday’s sentencing a “very disturbed individual.” … Read entire article »
