Man who cut wife’s neck found guilty of attempted murder, rape (AP)
A Texas man who said he sliced off the head of his estranged wife’s neck pleaded guilty Friday to first-degree murder, attempted murder and three sex charges and will serve seven years in prison.
Gage Lee Peltier, 30, pleaded guilty to attempted murder for slashing the throat of his 21-year-old ex-wife, Nicole Johnson, before stabbing her 14 times with a butcher knife, according to the 온라인카지노criminal complaint. Police arrested the husband in May after she was found dead in their San Antonio home. He later told police she was strangled.
Johnson died after being killed in November, The Dallas Morning News reported.
