A Natrona County man accused of trying to kill another person in the Dempsey Acres area, south of Mills, has entered a plea in court.

Robert Snyder has pleaded not guilty to one count of attempted second degree murder and one count of stalking.

Back in March, 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 another person, who had a restraining order against him.

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.

Snyder is being held on $100,000 bond awaiting trial, and he could face between 20-years to life in prison, on the attempted second degree murder charge, and up to 10 years in prison on the stalking charge, if convicted.
