ST. HELENS — Alisha VanDolah, the St. Helens woman charged with shooting her then boy-friend, Daniel McMil-len, was just recently committed to Oregon State Hospital for not more than 20 years.

On Oct. 18, 2010, police were called the Hods Lane mobile home VanDolah and McMillen were residing in. Upon arrival, officers discovered McMillen, then 34, had been shot in the shoulder, face and neck.

Vandolah was 28 at the time of the shooting.

McMillen was then transported to Emanuel Hospital in Portland.

VanDolah was arrested and charged with first-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon.

At the time of the shooting, McMillen had been jailed twice in the past for possession of methamphetamines and harassment while VanDolah had no prior criminal record in Columbia County, according to Sheriff Jeff Dickerson.

She was taken into custody without incident by St. Helens and Oregon State police officers.

This was not the first time police had been called to the home.

According to Dickerson, past criminal complaints included narcotics offenses, assaults, domestic violence calls, criminal trespassing and noise complaints.
