Millville NJ Man Pleads Guilty to Attempted Murder in Toms River
A Millville man pled guilty Wednesday to an attempted murder charge in relation to an incident that happened at a local hotel earlier this year.
Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer says Carles Bryant, 34, of Millville entered the plea in court yesterday in connection to an incident back on March 3rd at the Howard Johnson Hotel in Toms River.
Billhimer says that at Bryant's sentencing next month, the state "will recommend a term of fifteen years New Jersey State Prison subject to the terms of the No Early Release."
The incident in question was reported at about 10:30 pm on March 3rd. According to Billhimer, Toms River Police responded to a 911 call from the Howard Johnson Hotel in reference to an altercation between a man and woman in the hotel lobby. "When responding officers arrived, they found a female victim - unresponsive with multiple apparent stab wounds to the head, face, and body. The female was transported to a local hospital, where she was treated for her injuries and eventually released."
An investigation led police to Bryant as the possible assailant. He was arrested on March 19th - taken into custody in Atlantic City by United States Marshals, without incident.
Bryant has been held in the Ocean County Jail since his arrest.
