FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  The man who shot his wife and step-daughter at their home in the Dupont Estates Mobile Home Park back in October of 2013 has been sentenced to 60-years in prison less than a month after he pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted murder.

According to police, Stephen D. Walker got into an argument with his wife shortly before the shooting on October 28, 2013. According to court documents, Tina Walker filed for divorce in September of 2013. The shooting happened the night before the couple’s final divorce hearing.

Walker was captured by police three days after the shooting. Walker apparently led police on a foot pursuit, then drove off in a car. Police said Walker hit a police car with his car, then continued driving and later crashed into a field off of Diebold Road.

As part of the plea, eight other counts against Walker were dropped by the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office.
