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.

Now this government educated POS should have been lite up instead of the witness to a rape in MPLS.

Put him down like the rabid dog he is. Don’t waste our money feeding this criminal for the rest of his life.

This country is becoming to lenient when it comes to violent criminals. This thug killed two people, why should tax payers support him for the rest of his life. He should be executed, yesterday.

Allen, I agree 100%
