Moorhead - The former Moorhead man who kidnapped a Fargo woman and shot at police in early 2008 wanted officers to kill him, his attorney said Monday.


"(He) really had no malice for this police officer, but he did commit the crime," said Clay County public defender Bruce Ringstrom.

As a result, Vincent Degidio Jr. pleaded guilty Monday to charges of attempted murder and aggravated robbery.
