DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A Dickinson man accused of running over his wife with a pickup truck faces an attempted murder charge.
Twenty-nine-year-old Tyler Pelton also is charged with aggravated assault and driving under suspension in the December incident, and Stark County State's Attorney Tom Henning tells The Dickinson Press that more charges are being considered. Defense attorney Kevin McCabe declined comment.
Pelton is being held in the Dickinson jail on $100,000 bond. He faces up to 31 years in prison if convicted on the current charges.
Court documents say Pelton's wife required surgery to remove her colon and part of her diaphragm.
