A Kearns man was charged with trying to kill his mother after allegedly stabbing her and cutting her neck.
The 39-year-old man was charged in 3rd District Court on Friday with attempted murder, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated burglary, all first-degree felonies. He was also charged with assault against a police officer, a second-degree felony.
His 60-year-old mother survived, despite suffering 15 stab wounds and a cut across her neck, according to the charges.
The morning of May 16, the man entered his mother's garage as she opened the garage door from inside, even though she previously told him he was not allowed to come over, according to the charges. He then closed the garage door and started stabbing his mother, the charges add.
