Tucson man sentenced in 2010 dog-walker shooting

TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson man who shot and wounded a dog walker in 2010 has
been sentenced to 7 1/2 years in the Arizona State Hospital.

Pima County prosecutors say 35-year-old Ronald Michael Motisko was sentenced
Thursday.

He pleaded guilty but insane to two counts of aggravated assault in February.

Under his plea agreement, Motisko will be under the jurisdiction of the Arizona
State Psychiatric Review Board. The board could choose to send him to prison or
release him from custody if he no longer requires treatment.

Motisko was accused of shooting a woman in the back on March 1, 2010. He turned
himself in to authorities in January 2012.

The Arizona Daily Star says Motisko suffers from
auditory hallucinations and paranoia and was hospitalized several times for
psychotic symptoms.
