GREENVILLE — A Greenville woman accused of stabbing her husband has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of attempted felonious assault.
Angela D. Bergman, 32, was arrested by Greenville Police officers April 27 outside McMiller’s Carryout near the couple’s Martin Street residence in Greenville. She reportedly stabbed her husband, Anthony Bergman, several times in the chest with kitchen knives. The husband was hospitalized and eventually released. Bergman has no known criminal history prior to this incident.
Anthony Bergman appeared in court to witness the proceedings, as did members of Angela’s family.
Appearing Tuesday in Darke County Common Pleas Court with her defense attorney Randall Breaden, Bergman pleaded guilty to one count of attempted felonious assault, a third-degree felony. One second-degree felony charge of felonious assault was amended to the third-degree felony charge and a second felonious assault charge was dropped as part of a plea agreement with Darke County Prosecuting Attorney R. Kelly Ormsby.
Common Pleas Court Judge Jonathan P. Hein accepted the plea and told Bergman that when sentenced, she could face up to three years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
Bergman is currently free on bond. She will appear in court again December 18 for sentencing.
