BELFIELD, North Dakota — A Belfield man is accused of trying to stab another man to death.
Twenty-three-year-old Brett Hlibichuk on Oct. 20 allegedly stabbed the man twice in the stomach and once in the neck with a sharp instrument, The Bismarck Tribune reported.
Court documents say it took surgeons several hours to save the man's life.
The documents do not list an attorney for Hlibichuk. He is due in court on Dec. 29, and could enter a plea at that time to a Class AA felony attempted murder charge that carries a maximum sentence of life in prison without parole.
