Mont. man arrested in Spokane sentenced to prison
A 33-year-old Kalispell man who was arrested during standoff at a Washington state motel in which a woman was shot has been sentenced to three years in prison for violating the terms of his probation in two previous cases.
Eric Heil admitted to several violations of his sentences for burglary and felony deceptive practices, including traveling out of state without permission and associating with another probationer.
Heil said he did not know Bonnie Ulrick was on probation.
Heil said he was asleep in a Spokane Valley, Wash., motel on March 4 when he "woke up to being told we were surrounded." Heil surrendered.
Ulrick reportedly stuck a gun out the window and fired at SWAT team members who returned fire, hitting her hand.
District Judge Robert Allison sentenced Heil on April 3.
