A Chelsea Iowa man already facing felony drug and weapon charges stemming from a December pursuit through Henry County, ending in Mount Pleasant, is now facing attempted murder charges following an incident at a Chelsea residence earlier this month.
49 year old Anthony Michael Earp is accused of attempting to strangle a woman to death while making repeated threats to kill her. At some point during the altercation, Earp was shot in the head.
A man and woman who were present at the time have been questioned as to who fired the weapon.
Earp was taken to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics for treatment. He was released from the hospital days later and taken to jail.
