UTICA – The man accused of killing another man in a stabbing incident on John Street last month has been offered a plea deal, according to the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office.

Edmond Hyatt, 35, of Utica, was arraigned Wednesday on charges of second-degree murder and two counts of first-degree burglary.

Around 6 a.m. March 16, Utica police responded to the second floor of 705 John Street for a reported stabbing, and arriving officers found one man with a serious chest wound and one man with minor cuts. The man with the serious chest wound, later identified as 40-year-old Nicholas White, underwent emergency surgery at St. Elizabeth Medical Center and ultimately died from his injuries.

Hyatt was initially charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree burglary, first-degree attempted assault, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and seventh-dehree criminal possession of a controlled substance, but the attempted murder charge was upgraded to second-degree murder after White died.

Oneida County Court and the District Attorney’s Office confirmed that Hyatt was arraigned in Oneida County Court Wednesday, and he was offered a plea deal, but they would not release details on the offer.

Hyatt is due back in court on May 30 to report his decision on the plea deal.
