The SUNY Oneonta student accused of stabbing his girlfriend last month has been released on bail, according to the Otsego County district attorney.

On Dec. 8, Oneonta police responded to an apartment at 30 Maple Street where they found a female victim with stab wounds to the face, wrist and shoulders, sitting on a couch and bleeding profusely. Police say 20-year-old Julian Vancourt-Wels of Schenectady showed authorities a small kitchen knife that he said he had used to stab the victim multiple times.

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

Police have not identified the victim, but they did say that she and Vancourt-Wels were in a relationship. 

Vancourt-Wels entered a plea of not guilty and he was previously scheduled to return to court this week, but the DA says he’s working to bring the case to a grand jury as early as next Tuesday.
