|A forty-year-old Taylorville man suspected of shooting two people in a Tuesday evening incident at 1259 N. 1250 East Road in Taylorville has been charged with first degree attempted murder.|
If convicted, Nathan L. Howell could face a sentence of six years to life in prison stemming from the two charges filed against him, which include first degree attempted murder and aggravated discharge of a firearm. “The law says that you can charge attempted murder and prove attempted murder if you can prove any intent to kill. A lot of people think first degree is premeditation; there doesn’t have to be any premeditation,” Christian County State’s Attorney Mike Havera said of the charge.
