Woman suspected of shooting boyfriend charged

HACKBERRY - A Hackberry woman who shot her boyfriend and then dropped him off at the hospital has been charged with attempted murder along with driving while intoxicated.

Mia Marie Robb, 41, had a blood alcohol concentration of more than twice the legal limit when she was arrested at Kingman Regional Medical Center after bringing the victim in for treatment June 21.

Robb's boyfriend, Kurt Allen Sanders, 47, was airlifted to Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas where he is listed in good condition. Sanders was shot multiple times with a .22 caliber rifle after the pair got into an argument at their home in the 10700 block of Pine Valley Drive in Hackberry.

According to the police report, Robb had been drinking rum and cokes throughout the day before the argument started.

Robb drove more than 25 miles to drop Sanders off at KRMC while she stayed in the waiting room. Hospital officials notified authorities about the gunshot victim. When police arrived and questioned Robb, they noticed a strong odor of alcohol at which point she was taken into custody.

"We can't always make rhyme or reason out of domestic violence incidents, especially when there is alcohol involved," said Trish Carter, spokesperson for the Mohave County Sheriff's Office.

Robb was released from jail before a warrant was issued on the attempted murder charge. Police here notified the Yavapai County Sheriff's office that Robb may be visiting a relative there and she was arrested by deputies on the additional charges June 27. She is currently awaiting extradition to Mohave County.

Robb faces one felony count of attempted murder and two counts of felony aggravated assault along with the DUI charge.
