Clint Webb Bound Over To District Court In Attempted Murder Case
The case involving a Casper man accused of trying to kill his wife over a divorce last year, is moving forward in court, and a new charge has been added on.
A judge has determined that there is probable cause to bound over 42-year old Clint Webb, on one charge of attempted second degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of property destruction and one count of interference with a peace officer.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say in late June, Webb tried to run over his wife, Julie, and crashed into several other vehicles in the process.
Julie told officers that she was traveling westbound in her vehicle, on East 12th Street, approaching Payne Street, when Clint ran the stop sign, while traveling south on Payne, and rammed her vehicle with his.
After she got out of her car, Clint drove around the block and tried to run her over, while she was standing on a neighbors' front lawn.
One witness saw the latter attempt, and told police there was no doubt that the driver was trying to run Julie over.
Another witness saw both incidents and told investigators that Clint was deliberately trying to cause damage, and a third witness managed to get the license plate number and described Clint's driving as erratic and very fast.
Clint's vehicle eventually became inoperable, but he was able to get another vehicle and drive to Las Vegas, Nevada.
It was there that his defense attorney says he turned himself in.
Officers later learned that Julie had a protection order against Clint.
One of Clint's co-workers said earlier in the day in which the incident occurred, Clint had been served divorce papers while at work, and he went home early that day.
Another co-worker told investigators while giving Clint a ride home, Clint had asked if he had any firearms for sale, but a transaction did not take place.
In late October 2014, Clint was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing, but instead was ordered to undergo a mental evaluation.
Shortly after being escorted out of the courtroom, an incident took place, and a Natrona County Sheriff's Deputy told investigators that Clint tried to head butt him several times.
Both men ended up on the floor and the deputy ended up going to the hospital.
Clint is being held on $100,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face between 20-years to life in prison on the attempted second degree murder charge, if convicted.
