August 26th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

A Crawford County man accused of murder has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter. According to the Daily Nonpareil, 28 year old Ben Wingrove made his plea Friday, in Crawford County District Court. Along with voluntary manslaughter, Wingrove also plead guilty to intimidation with a dangerous weapon and reckless use of a firearm. Each felony charge carries up to a 10 year prison sentence.

Crawford County Attorney Roger Sailer told the paper the agreement would have Wingrove serve the sentences consecutively. The initial charge in the case was first-degree murder, in connection with the death of 29-year old Adam Lary. The incident resulting in Lary’s death occurred March 16th outside of a local tavern in Dow City.

According to court records, the men argued at the bar around 1-am. When Lary walked outside followed by Wingrove, Wingrove fired shots at the Ford Taurus Lary was driving, hitting him in the chest. The vehicle ended up crashing into a garage.

Court documents say Wingrove called 911 and that he admitted shooting at a car that swerved. Deputies found Wingrove standing with a pistol next to him. Lary was transported to a local hospital, and died a short time later.
