Annapolis man pleads guilty in multiple stabbing of girlfriend ANNAPOLIS/SOUTH COUNTY * Davidsonville * Edgewater * Shady Side * Deale

October 16, 1992

A 33-year-old Annapolis man pleaded guilty to attempted murder yesterday in the stabbing of his girlfriend during an argument in her apartment last summer.

Anthony A. Bradford, of the 1000 block of Madison St., admitted that he became angry when his girlfriend, Carol Anderson, refused to have sex with him in the early morning hours of Aug. 15.

According to a statement read in court by Robert Bittman, an assistant state's attorney, Bradford approached the couch where Ms. Anderson was sitting and stabbed her seven times. One of the wounds just missed her heart.

Ms. Anderson went out into the street and called neighbors for help. She was found by a police officer clutching a blood-soaked pillow to her chest, bleeding from wounds to her face, shoulders, arms and chest.

Police arrested Bradford in the living room, which was covered with blood, according to the police report.

Bradford told police when he was arrested that he had stabbed Anderson because he got angry during a fight over her persistent drug use.

He showed an officer a 6-inch knife with a black handle soaking in the kitchen sink, police said.

As a part of the plea agreement, Bradford faces a maximum of 10 years in prison.

Judge Raymond G. Thieme Jr. set sentencing for Nov. 23.
