Man who killed Iowa deputy while escaping from custody gets life sentence

COUNCIL BLUFFS – A man who shot two deputies – killing one – as he was transported from a jail earlier this year and then led police on a dangerous chase has been sentenced to life in prison.

On Monday, May 1, 2017 at approximately 10:55 AM, a suspect shot two Pottawattamie County Deputies at the Pottawattamie County Jail in Council Bluffs while escaping custody. Both deputies were transported to Omaha, Nebraska hospitals; one of the deputies, 43-year-old Mark Burbridge, succumbed to his injuries and passed away.

The suspect who did the shooting was apprehended after a high-speed chase. Wesley Williams Correa-Carmenaty, age 24, fought the two deputies who were transporting him.  He allegedly stole one of their guns, and then shot both before fleeing in a stolen van. He carjacked a woman before later freeing her, and was finally caught in Omaha after a high-speed chase.

Correa-Carmenaty pled guilty to murder. He was sentenced this week to life in prison without the chance of parole.
