A Nikiski man charged with attempted murder in the first degree was arraigned in Superior Court at Kenai Courthouse Monday.
Joshua Saunders, 34, also faces a second-degree assault charge and a third-degree assault charge.
Public defender Hatton Greer entered pleas of not guilty for all counts against Saunders.
The charges resulted from a June 27 domestic violence 911 call from Saunders’ girlfriend. According to a report filed by Alaska State Troopers, the alleged victim told officers Saunders had strangled and punched her.
