Moose pleads guilty to attempted murder


Fri, Apr 2nd, 2004
Posted in Features

Richard Jeffers was inspecting a landscaping job in the Conway Subdivision of Chatfield last May 23 when a man walked out of the weeds carrying a gun.

After asking Jeffers what he was doing, the gunman told him, Lets get moving.

Jeffers had left his truck running, with the door open, and when he didnt respond, the man pointed his gun at him and said, I told you to get moving Mother----er. Move, move!

On Wednesday in Fillmore County District Court, Jeffers identified Floyd George Moose, 40, of Chatfield as the man with the gun that day.

Jeffers told a jury that when he got into his pickup to go, Moose came to the drivers side window and aimed the gun at his head.

He looked at me, I looked at him, he squinted, and he pulled the trigger, Jeffers told the court. I heard a click. I took off with the pickup.

Prosecuting Attorney Pat Oman told the jury in his opening remarks that the bullet in Mooses gun had a flaw and that it didnt go off. He said that law enforcement officials would later find that the bullet had an imprint from the firing pin, indicating that the trigger had been pulled and the shell engaged.

Jeffers was the first of several witnesses to testify in court about the reign of terror inflicted by Moose on the citizens of Chatfield that day.

After his encounter with Mr. Jeffers, Moose went to the nearby Chosen Valley Care Center where his estranged wife used to work.

Katie Boelter, a Certified Nursing Assistant, was pulling med cards at a desk in the nursing home when Moose approached her looking for his ex-wife.

Boelter told the court that Moose pointed the gun at her chest and asked her, Where is your purse? Where are your keys?

Moose forced Boelter toward the exit near the parking lot. Exiting the building, Boelters med-keys set off an alarm and the excitement allowed the woman to escape from Moose.

Moose then grabbed Michelle Henke, a nursing assistant who was outside on break. Henke testified that Moose put the gun up to her temple and demanded her car keys.

Henke said that she told Moose several times that she doesnt drive.

Alarmed about events unfolding, Tammy Brown, a case manager at Chosen Valley Care Center, follo .....
