COOPERSTOWN – The former SUNY Oneonta student accused of stabbing his girlfriend in an off-campus apartment was offered a plea deal in Otsego County Court on Friday.

Julian Vancourt-Wels of Schenectady is charged with felony second-degree attempted murder, felony first-degree assault and misdemeanor fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

On Dec. 8, Oneonta police responded to an apartment on Maple Street in Oneonta where they found a female victim with stab wounds to the face, wrist and shoulders. Police say Vancourt-Wels showed them a small kitchen knife that he said he had used to stab his girlfriend multiple times.

The case was adjourned Friday so that Vancourt-Wels could consider a plea offer, which entails pleading guilty to assault in exchange for a 15-year prison sentence.

Officials say Vancourt-Wels is also consulting with mental health officials. The Otsego County District Attorney’s Office expects a report on that in the near future.
