Goshen, Ind. A Goshen man, accused of trying to kill his ex-girlfriend with a screwdriver and an electric cord, will spend the next quarter-century behind bars.
A judge sentenced Chase Anglemyer, 22, today to 25 years in prison and five years suspended after he admitted to the attempted murder as part of a plea agreement.
It unfolded back in late January when Anglemyer allegedly broke into his former girlfriend's Bremen home and dragged her to another nearly residence.
There, he hit the young woman several times with a screwdriver and shaved her head.
Anglemyer then wrapped a cord around her neck and choked her until she lost consciousness.
When police confronted him about the woman's whereabouts he told them she was dead.
Fortunately, she was revived and taken to the hospital.
In court, prosecutors described the crime as "a case of escalating domestic violence."
Last October Anglemyer was convicted for domestic battery on the same victim.
