Nick Chamberlain walked with his former high-school sweetheart into the woods behind Service High School on Monday during lunch break with the promise of a silver ring, told her to close her eyes and lift her head, then plunged a pocket knife into her neck, according to documents filed in court Tuesday charging him with attempted murder.
He continued stabbing the girl until he had inflicted 29 wounds, the documents say.
The attack was so brutal that at one point he bent the 2 1/2 inch blade of the folding knife he was using. The attack ended only after a skier confronted the 16-year-old student, who shouted curses and slashed at the man, spattering the witness's glasses with blood. The boy then walked off into the woods, according to court documents.
At a court hearing Tuesday, Chamberlain said little as Judge Catherine Easter ordered him transferred from McLaughlin Youth Center to the Anchorage jail, where he will await trial as an adult on charges of attempted murder, first- and third-degree assault and tampering with evidence.
