Man Pleads No Contest in Grand Island Stabbing

stabbing(AP) — A 41-year-old man has pleaded no contest to attempted first-degree murder in the stabbing of his estranged girlfriend outside a Grand Island church.

Aslin C. Nabarro entered the plea Wednesday.

Other charges related to the assault were dropped.

Nabarro was arrested after a May 17 assault in a parking lot of St. Mary’s Cathedral.

After an argument with a woman identified as Mirna Medina-Colocho, Nabarro stabbed her 20 times in the upper torso and head.

He then cut his own throat and fled but collapsed less than a block away.

Medina-Colocho and Nabarro both recovered.

Nabarro will be sentenced Sept. 26.
