A Lawrence man accused of stabbing a homeless man pleaded guilty to one charge of aggravated battery Wednesday morning in a plea deal reached with prosecutors, court records said.
Adam Mallamo, 20, was initially charged with attempted second-degree murder in Douglas County District Court. He's accused of stabbing a man in the chest with a knife on May 7 at the Lawrence Community Shelter, 214 W. 10th St. A 19-year-old victim was treated for wounds at a Kansas City area hospital.
Mallamo was at the shelter playing chess when the stabbing occurred, according to shelter director Loring Henderson, who said the stabbing was not a result of the chess game.
Mallamo is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Robert Fairchild at 8:30 a.m. Nov. 13.
