MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Marshfield man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for trying to kill abortion providers.
65-year-old Ralph Lang was sentenced for attempted first-degree intentional homicide on Friday.
Court records show in 2011, Lang was cleaning his gun at a hotel room when it went off. When police arrived, he told them about killing abortion doctors at Planned Parenthood.
Lang will also face 10 years of supervision when he is out of prison.
The U.S. Department of Justice may also decide to file federal charges – which could come in a few weeks.
