CORWITH, IA - A benefit was held Saturday evening for Dustin Kiefer, the victim in an alleged shooting back in July.
Kiefer was allegedly shot several times by Andrew Zeitler in Wesley in July and as Zeitler waits to stand trial for the charge of attempted murder next month, the Kiefer family looking to their community for support.
Dustin's fiancee, kids, friends and extended family were all there in support of the Kiefers.
"It’s been pretty hectic,” Ashley Badker said.
Ashley is Dustin’s fiancée who has been there since the beginning of everything and even though it’s been a long road with many hospital visits, she’s hopeful that the physical therapy will be helpful for his healing process.
“He's still got a lot of pain. He can't feel the inside of his foot or his big toe, he ended up with an abscess on his, where his femoral artery was repaired and was in the hospital for four days,” Badker said.
Badker says that main thing on their minds right now is paying off their medical bills.
They’re hoping that the benefit will help them overcome the financial part of their recovery but there is still a long road ahead for the family.
Ashley and Dustin both said how thankful they have been for the overwhelming support from their community and said that they are doing their best to prepare for the trial that is just around the corner.
The pretrial of Andrew Zeitler is slated for Nov. 18th as he faces the charge of attempted murder.
