INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man was sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to repeatedly stabbing a woman in the neck.
Charles Green pleaded guilty to attempted murder, a Level 1 felony, on Wednesday, WTTV-TV reported.
According to court documents, the stabbing occurred not long after Charles Green joined his girlfriend and her friend in a church parking lot on May 27, 2020.
The women were about to walk across the street to buy food from a convenience store when Green allegedly approached them and told his girlfriend that she did not need to be walking by herself, WTTV reported.
When the other woman intervened, Green reportedly stabbed her in the neck several times, slitting her throat, WTHR-TV reported.
In a copy of the 911 call, the victim can be heard saying “Help me,” “He slit my throat” and “Charles slit my throat,” according to court documents.
Green fled the scene on foot, WTHR reported.
Doctors later told police that if the victim had not been able to receive immediate medical attention, she may have bled to death due to a severed artery, the television station reported.
