Father/daughter shooting suspects arrested

Dade City, Florida -- Investigators say they have arrested the people responsible for shooting a man and his 11-year-old daughter last week.

Donnie Lee Wheeler, 44 and his girlfriend, 30-year-old Melissa Kay Spencer, were arrested at her mother's home in Dade City. They both face charges of possession and manufacture of methamphetamine, while Wheeler is also charged with two counts of attempted murder.

Both have been booked into the Land O'Lakes Detention Center.

Kenneth Criger was shot at least once in the back while his daughter was shot in the jaw. Officials say both were expected to survive.

After the August 12 shooting, Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco said the incident appeared to have been a drug deal gone bad.
