A 58-year old man accused of stabbing a woman Wednesday in Springfield has pleaded not guilty. Brian Butler was arraigned Thursday in Windsor Superior Court following Wednesday’s crime, answering charges of Attempted Second Degree Murder, Aggravated Domestic Assault, and Violation of Conditions of Release.
Butler currently has a second aggravated domestic assault charge against the same female victim, who remains unidentified at this time, but is known to Butler.
On Wednesday around 2:30 PM, Springfield officers responded to a call and found the woman outside of a home covered in blood with a stab wound to her abdomen. She was transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and revealed Butler’s identity.
Police quickly apprehended him outside of Village Pizza on Mainstreet and hour and a half later.
He is currently being held without bail at the Southern State Correctional Facility, pending his next court appearance May 17th.
