MEDICINE LODGE – (October 15, 2020) – A Sedgwick County man has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for his role in a 2018 home invasion in rural Barber County.

Ora Munger, 42, of Wichita, was sentenced yesterday to 351 months in prison for one count of attempted second-degree murder, three counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of mistreatment of an elder person and one count of criminal damage in the amount of over $1,000 but less than $25,000. Judge Francis E. Meisenheimer issued the sentence in Barber County District Court. Munger entered a guilty plea to all charges on September 4.

The crimes occurred in July 2018 near Medicine Lodge.

The case was investigated by the Barber County Sheriff’s Office and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Paul Brothers of the Fraud and Abuse Litigation Division of the Kansas Attorney General’s Office.
