Milton man found guilty of attempted murder
Milton man found guilty of attempted murder. A 21-year-old Milton man has been found guilty in the 2010 attempted murder of his estranged girlfriend.
The verdict — following a three-week trial — was delivered last night, after the jury deliberated for more than three days.
The trial court heard testimony from 14 witnesses in the case against Brandon Adamson, and there was an extensive list of exhibits entered into evidence.
The trial also heard evidence from a DNA expert from the Centre of Forensic Sciences.
The jury also convicted Adamson of break and enter with intent to commit an offence, assault with a weapon and aggravated assault.
The convictions relate to an incident that took place at a Bronte Street residence during the early morning hours of November 10, 2010, when Adamson was alleged to have broken into the home of his estranged girlfriend, who was pregnant.
Court heard that once inside the home, he entered her bedroom and slit her throat with a knife. Her family came to her aid once she started screaming, and Adamson fled the house.
He was arrested a short time later at his own residence.
Adamson had his recognizance of bail revoked and was taken into custody immediately upon the conviction. He will be held for sentencing on April 8 at Milton Superior Court
