In September, Keith Watts pleaded guilty to a charge of Felonious Assault for stabbing Deandria Watkins in early April.

Police caught up with them and found Watkins in the back seat with several stab wounds. She was taken to a hospital for treatment and Watts was arrested.

He apologized in court Friday for the incident. Judge Terri Kohlrieser said that she would look at the possibility of parole for Watts after 6 months.
