Jury convicts Fort Wayne man of attempting to kill his girlfriend

Thursday, October 24, 2013 - 4:57 am

A Fort Wayne man was convicted of attempted murder, a Class A felony, and four other crimes on Wednesday by an Allen County Superior Court jury.

That panel deliberated for more than three hours before finding Harry White II, 44, guilty of trying to kill his girlfriend of seven years, who was stabbed. The jury also convicted him of intimidation, a Class C felony; strangulation, a Class D felony; auto theft, a Class D felony; and interfering with the reporting of a crime, a Class A misdemeanor.

According to court documents, White's attack on his girlfriend happened June 21. Investigators said that the woman was stabbed several times by White; she was taken to the hospital in serious condition. In addition to stabbing her, investigators said that White threatened her, choked her with his hands and drove off with a car registered to the woman's father.

White's sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 22.
