BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a Billings woman to 35 years in prison with 10 years suspended for shooting a woman during a 2010 gunfight.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/OnxbYm ) that Judge Russell Fagg sentenced 27-year-old Crystal Lee Lundberg Wednesday.

Lundberg previously pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and tampering.

Police arrested Lundberg after the Dec. 10, 2010, shooting of 25-year-old Lindsey Schmaing on Billings’ Underpass Avenue.

Schmaing’s husband, Steven Schmaing, told investigators that Lundberg fired one shot from a pickup truck and that he returned fire from his car.

Steven Schmaing was previously given a three-year deferred sentence for returning fire.

Court records say the shooting may have been an attempt to keep Schmaing from talking about the 2010 theft of 133 guns, rifles and shotguns from freight trucks in Billings.
