A Bismarck man is charged with attempted murder after police say he admitted to trashing the victim’s residence and stabbing him.
32-year-old Dalton Peltier is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault with a weapon, criminal mischief and terrorizing.
Peltier told Burleigh County Deputies that he believed another man had committed a crime — and told authorities that led him to stab the victim.
Officials also say Peltier threatened to kill a witness to the stabbing.
In total, the four felony charges carry a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison.
