HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas man already serving a life sentence for sodomizing an infant faces a new trial for a courtroom attack on a prosecutor.
The Hutchinson News reports 27-year-old Michael Sherman was bound over for trial on a charge of attempted premeditated murder following a hearing Wednesday.
The attack on Reno County District Attorney Keith Schroeder happened last July 10 just after a judge reaffirmed Sherman's life sentence.
Schroeder and others in the courtroom said Sherman jumped from his seat, put Schroeder in a headlock and tried to choke him with the chain of his shackles.
Sherman's lawyer argued Wednesday there was no evidence of premeditation or that Sherman was trying to kill Schroeder. The judge disagreed and set Sherman's arraignment for March 3.
