Man sentenced in shooting death of woman outside Milford business
Christian Goyne-Yarns was sentenced on Jan. 5 in Dickinson County to life in prison.
SPIRIT LAKE, Iowa — The shooter in the February 2022 death of a Spirit Lake, Iowa, woman was sentenced Jan. 5 in Dickinson County Court.
Christian Goyne-Yarns, 27, was found guilty of first-degree murder by a Buena Vista County jury on Dec. 9, in the fatal shooting of Shelby Woizeschke, 24. He was sentenced in Dickinson County to life in prison and ordered to pay $150,000 in restitution to the Woizeschke family. A five-year no-contact order was also issued.
Woizeschke was shot at least twice in the parking lot of her workplace, GrapeTree Medical Staffing in Milford, Iowa, on Feb 3. Woizeschke identified Goyne-Yarns, an ex-boyfriend, as the shooter in a 911 call.
Goyne-Yarns was arrested later that morning in Spirit Lake, Iowa. Woizeschke died in a Sioux Falls hospital three days later.
Initially set for Dickinson County, Goyne-Yarns’ trial was moved to Buena Vista County at the request of the defense. Goyne-Yarns also underwent a mental competency evaluation in July.
