There has been a plea deal in the case of a Muhlenberg County man accused of stabbing his wife in the neck.

Prosecutors say 42-year-old Jeff Warner stabbed his wife, Tina, after a custody hearing in December.

On Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to second degree assault in exchange for a ten year prison sentence. Authorities say a good Samaritan driving by pulled a gun on Warner to stop the attack.

Officials say Tina has recovered.

A formal sentencing is scheduled for February 17.
