Plea deal taking shape in Otsego veteran's trial
OTSEGO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A plea deal is taking shape Tuesday afternoon involving an Otsego veteran charged with attempted murder.
Anthony McFarlane's veteran attorney, Mike Gawecki, says a deal was reached with the prosecutor that would drop an attempted murder charge keeping McFarlane out of jail.
Instead, he would be transferred to the IOnia County Veterans Treatment Court.
However, the judge says he still reserves the right to throw out the deal at sentencing.
This is a story Newschannel 3 has followed since McFarlane was charged with stabbing Adam Laws at an Otsego apartment back in April.
His family insists it was in self-defense.
Newschannel 3 has a crew following the story, and we will bring you updates as they come in.
