VAN WERT A 16-year-old boy charged with attacking his foster mother and her daughter pleaded guilty yesterday in Van Wert County Common Pleas Court to attempted murder and felonious assault.
Dionntai R. Holyfield-Geiger cut Karen Dull on the face with a kitchen knife March 9 and attacked her daughter at their Van Wert County home. Mrs. Dull s daughter, who experienced less serious injuries, was able to dial 911 to summon help.
Holyfield-Geiger, who was 15 at the time, was bound over to the Common Pleas Court in May, in part because of his long history of violent behavior. He is to be sentenced Aug. 31.
