Wife of Murdered Des Moines Man Wants Charges Dropped Against Daughter, Who Admits to Pulling the Trigger
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Susan Hartmann says the charges filed against her daughter do not fit with the woman she knows. “Just complete shock, I couldn’t, I still can’t wrap my head around it,” said Hartmann. Sera Alexander was active in the Renaissance fair and part of a science fiction group that donates to child reading programs. Now, she’s charged with the first-degree murder of her adoptive father Anthony.
