Pair who twice pleaded guilty to assault with intent to murder to be sentenced Nov. 16

Tiffany Chanthavong, 23, and her boyfriend Cory Wagner, 28, were sentenced to prison last year after both pleaded guilty to assault with intent to murder Wagner’s mother.

In October, 2016, Chanthavong was sentenced to 23.3 to 40 years in prison. Two weeks later, Wagner was sentenced to prison for 15 to 35 years.

 

Both were allowed to withdraw their pleas based on legal technicalities to do with plea taking procedures, and both were back in court Sept. 8 seeking trials.

 

However, neither would go to trial.

 

Earlier this month, Wagner again pleaded guilty to assault with intent to murder and is to be sentenced by Judge Amy Mc Dowell on Nov. 16 at 8:10 a.m.

Last week, Chanthavong also again pleaded guilty to the same charge and will be sentenced Nov. 16 at 8:15 a.m. in the same court.

 

On July 4, 2016, the couple were at Wagner’s mother’s house on Huff Road in Assyria Township asking her for money for him to leave the state to get away from problems with the law in Michigan.

When Diane Wagner refused, the pair beat her, threatened to kill her with a knife, tied her to a chair, locked her in a bathroom, stole her car and credit card and fled.

They were arrested in Illinois the next day and brought back to Barry County to face charges.
