FARMINGTON – A not guilty plea was entered by 47-year-old Bennie Bowie of Carthage.
Police say Bowie and his girlfriend got into an argument because he was jealous. She claimed he started punching her in the face and slammed her face into the dashboard of his pickup when she went to the vehicle to escape. The victim also says he poked her several times in the neck with a knife.
Bowie was arrested a couple days later and charged with attempted murder and other charges. He has since pleaded not guilty.
