East Grand Forks man reaches plea deal in ND stabbing

GRAND FORKS (AP) — A Minnesota man charged with attempted murder in a North Dakota stabbing has reached an agreement with prosecutors.

If a judge accepts the deal on Dec. 8, 20-year-old Trevor Zahradka of East Grand Forks, Minn., would serve 2 1/2 years in prison on an aggravated assault charge.

The Grand Forks Herald reports he also would have to serve three years on supervised probation and receive a substance-abuse evaluation.

Zahradka is accused of stabbing 32-year-old Clarence Clauthier four times in his back and side outside a Grand Forks apartment building in June. Police say the men knew one another.
