WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) — A 23-year-old Wahpeton man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed his female neighbor.

The Forum reports (http://bit.ly/oRLwTP ) that Patrick Wayne Wolfgram made his initial court appearance Tuesday morning in Richland County District Court and applied for a court-appointed attorney. Prosecutors say Wolfgram stabbed 26-year-old Trista Martin several times in the back, neck and head. She is listed in satisfactory condition at Sanford Medical Center.

The stabbing was reported early Friday morning. Police arrived and found Martin lying in the street with multiple stab wounds.

Police say Wolfgram and Martin both live in the housing complex but other than being neighbors, they didn't appear to have any kind of relationship prior to the incident.

Wolfgram remains in the Richland County Jail on $500,000 bond
