Robert Snyder Pleads Guilty To Attempted Second Degree Murder and Stalking; Trial Called Off
A Natrona County man who tried to kill another person in the Dempsey Acres area, south of Mills, is admitting to it, and has called off the trial.
Robert Snyder has pleaded guilty to one count of attempted second degree murder and one count of stalking.
Back in March 2015, Natrona County Sheriff's Deputies made contact with the victim, Kevin Simmons, who was being taken by vehicle to the hospital, and was then transferred to an ambulance.
The incident occurred on the 4500 block of Countryside Court.
Investigators say Snyder was there to make contact with his ex-girlfriend, JoAnna Mannarino, who according to her testimony in court, had a restraining order against him, because he had threatened to kill her.
Snyder was asked to leave, but then he pulled out a knife and stabbed Simmons, before fleeing the area.
Snyder turned himself in and admitted to the stabbing incident.
Doctors told deputies that Simmons had been stabbed 13 times.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors have agreed that the sentences on each charge will run concurrent to each other, or at the same time, and could seek up to 25 years in prison on the attempted second degree murder charge, and up to 10 years on the stalking charge.
Snyder is being held without bond and will be sentenced at a later date.
