The case of attempted murder of a Stillwater man concluded on Monday after the accused, Kyle Chirip, accepted a plea deal. In exchange for pleading guilty to second-degree aggravated assault, he will serve four years in state prison.
The 22-year-old was accused of stabbing Timothy Martin six times with a knife because he reportedly thought it would help him get initiated into the Bloods street gang. He was facing charges of first-degree attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and robbery. If he was found guilty on those charges he could have spent up to 66 years in prison.
Chirip isn't the only one to face a prison sentence for the stabbing case. Tyler Godfrey, of Newton, admitted to being a co-conspirator in the case and accepted a plea deal in May that called for him to serve 10 years.
