Winslow man accused of attempted murder

Bond was set at $50,000 Monday for a man accused of trying to kill his girlfriend.

Lloyd Dickson Pense, 43, of Winslow is being held in the Crawford County Detention Center on suspicion of attempted murder and possession of a firearm by certain persons.

Crawford County Circuit Court Judge Gary R. Cottrell ruled Monday there was enough evidence to hold Pense.

Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Robert Presley said Pense was arrested Saturday after he allegedly fired a .45-caliber pistol at his girlfriend, who was sitting in her car outside a residence she was attempting to leave in the Winfrey Valley area of north-central Crawford County.

The call came in about 4:42 a.m., according to a Crawford County dispatcher.

Presley said the shot burst the passenger window and the glass caused minor wounds to the girlfriend’s right shoulder and side.

Pense attempted to fire again but the gun jammed and he ejected rounds on the ground trying to get the gun to fire again, Presley said.

He said the victim ran to a neighbor’s house and called 911.

Cottrell set an inquiry-to-counsel hearing for 8:30 a.m. July 9 after Pense said he could afford to hire his own attorney.

Presley said Pense has a parole hold and the prosecuting attorney’s office will file a petition to revoke previous convictions for domestic violence.

Cottrell also ordered Pense to have no contact with the girlfriend is he if released from the detention center.
