WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - A Hawaii man was found guilty of attempted murder more than four years after a woman's throat was slit in an apartment.
The Maui News reports Calvin Borge was convicted Friday of second-degree attempted murder of Deanna Bolen Nitta.
Borge's attorney, Michael Green, says he is a "little surprised" by the verdict but respects the jury's decision.
Witnesses say Borge approached Bolen Nitta from behind and cut her throat Feb. 19, 2013, while she was at a gathering in a housing apartment.
Police found Bolen Nitta lying on the kitchen floor with her husband, Regan Nitta, kneeling over her and applying pressure to her neck with a towel.
Nitta testified that after seeing his wife bleeding, he got the knife away from Borge and stabbed him in the chest.
