DES MOINES – An Iowa woman who lured her brother and sister to her apartment where she had a gun waiting and then used it on them has died in prison, authorities announced this week.

Anna Marie Bunch was pronounced dead due to natural causes at 8:05 p.m. on Monday, December 31, 2018 at Mercy Medical Center where she had been taken due to a medical emergency. Bunch was 56 years old at the time of her death.

Bunch had been serving two 25-year maximum sentences for the crime of Attempted Murder from Black Hawk County. Her sentence began on November 7, 2012.

According to court documents, on May 26, 2010, Defendant Anna Bunch called her half-sister, Carole Townsend-Sims, and asked Carole to come to her apartment “right away.” Townsend-Sims went to Bunch’s Waterloo apartment accompanied by Warren Jefferson-Bey. Bunch’s and Carole’s half-brother. When Carole and Warren arrived at Bunch’s apartment, they rang the security buzzer to be admitted into the building. Bunch went to the entrance door, admitted Carole and Warren into the building, and then led them to Bunch’s apartment. They entered the apartment, and Bunch asked Warren to shut the apartment door. At the same time, Bunch walked directly to a table, picked up a .22 caliber gun contained within a box on the table, and turned and fired on Carole and Warren while cursing at them. The first shot missed both Warren and Carole. The second shot hit Warren in the mouth, and he fell to the floor. Carole fled the apartment. Bunch pursued, firing three or four more times at Carole as Carole fled down the hallway of the apartment building. Bunch then returned to the apartment. She put the .22 to Warren’s head and told him to pick himself up off the floor and leave. He did. Law enforcement arrested Bunch later that day.

    Lacking education usually indicates an over tolerant attitude towards african americans. Being educated gives tou the ability ro look at the statistics and deduce that they are in fact worthless lecherous scum bags that need a good sterilization.

      Wrong. Lack of education means that one usually believes stereotypical descriptions of people are accurate. Most Trumpies have bought into his fear mongering because he exploits those stereotypes about others that he knows most bother his base.

        So now im a trump supporter based on assumptions. Also you think nobody had racist thoughts before trump was president. Good job assuming. Problem is i wasnt being racist. I dont buy into two party politics like you apparently do so youre wrong twice. These people in this story are obviously scum despite their skin color which you seem obssessed with. Go away.

          Seems to me you are making the assumptions by characterizing these people based on a news story. You say they are all scum. Why? The two people who were shot did nothing wrong other than respond to a sister’s request. Are they scum because they were shot? I know trumpie doesn’t like people who get shot. Or, do you assume like him, that all minorities are MS-13 members?

            No. But im alive so i can deduce. Low income apt building indicates section 8(usually associated with criminals). She shot at two people for supposedly no reason, she was either on dope or mentally unstable. I think youre aware that these people more than likely are addicts. YYoure being disingenuous and hiding behind the fact that they are black. I havent done that. Youre still calling me a “trumpy” when i told you i dont buy into two party politics like a dumb it that snowflakes dont have any arguements past hate speech and trumo bashing? How did you go from welfare crackhead to ms13?

            All the stereotypes that you use help me deduce that you are a racist, misinformed trumpster.

      The word you wanted to use but didn’t have the education to use is “rabid’
