Guilty plea in attempted murder

October 20, 1994|By Mike Farabaugh | Mike Farabaugh,Sun Staff Writer

A 30-year-old parolee pleaded guilty yesterday to the attempted murder of a woman that he followed on her way to work in Havre de Grace and stabbed eight times. The March 1993 attack occurred a month after he was released from prison.

At the time, James Eugene Barnes of the 100 block of Vancherie Court in Havre de Grace, was on parole after serving seven years for assault with intent to rape and related sexual offenses, court records showed.

Harford County Circuit Judge William O. Carr agreed to abide by a plea arrangement that limited Barnes' maximum penalty to 30 years in prison.

The judge ordered Barnes held without bail pending sentencing Nov. 22.
