Nampa teen pleads guilty to stabbing girl at high school

Washington state teacher settles discrimination suit

A 17-year-old Idaho student has pleaded guilty to stabbing his ex-girlfriend in the parking lot of a Nampa high school.

Wyatt Weist pleaded guilty Tuesday to attempted first-degree murder after reaching an agreement with Canyon County prosecutors.

Authorities say Weist stabbed the 17-year-old victim seven times in the parking lot of Columbia High School in early December. The girl survived the attack.

Weist told the court that “I knew what I was doing, and I intended to do it.”

Prosecutors dropped the charge enhancement of deadly use of a weapon as part of the plea deal. The enhancement would have doubled the maximum sentence to 30 years in prison.

Weist is scheduled to be sentenced in July.
