SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A man accused of shooting his common-law wife seven times as she worked at a South Texas Army post has pleaded guilty and faces up to 20 years in prison.
Prosecutors in San Antonio say 52-year-old Alvin Lee Roundtree pleaded guilty Wednesday to assaulting a federal officer or employee with a deadly weapon.
The woman survived last June's attack at Fort Sam Houston. The shooting took place at the Army Medical Department Center and School, where the victim was an instructor.
Investigators say Roundtree, who apparently was upset because the woman was leaving him, remains in custody pending sentencing.
His nephew, 29-year-old Leonard Roundtree Jr. of Richardson, faces charges of conspiring with his uncle to hire someone to kill the woman to prevent her from testifying.
