The trial of the Seneca Falls man accused of stabbing a woman several times will begin next month.

According to Seneca County District Attorney Mark Sinkiewicz, Christopher Freeman’s trial related to the August 2019 incident will likely kick off on June 21.

Freeman faces attempted murder, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon charges- all felonies- after stabbing a woman multiple times in a parking lot during a domestic dispute.

After the attack, he put the woman and three children in a vehicle and drove off.

Freeman ran into a nearby home on Chapin St. and stabbed himself in the throat and chest. Officers performed life-saving measures until EMT’s arrived.

He faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
