A man who shot and wounded a woman in her home in Norfolk last winter has been sent to prison.

Carlos Arevalo-Martinez was sentenced on Wednesday in Madison County District Court to a total of 27 to 37 years in prison. He pleaded guilty in August to first-degree assault and use of a firearm to commit a felony.

Arevalo-Martinez was accused of shooting Edna Gutierrez in the head on Feb. 14. He was taken into custody after a standoff with police in Stanton on Feb. 16.

Arevalo-Martinez maintained the gun went off accidentally but evidence indicated that he hit Gutierrez with the gun prior to the shooting.

Gutierrez was in the courtroom for the hearing but didn't testify.
