CINCINNATI (AP) — A man has pleaded guilty to trying to kill a Cincinnati-area man by shooting him with a bow and arrow as he slept.
Fifty-seven-year-old Harry Spivey pleaded guilty Monday in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court to attempted murder. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Spivey admitted shooting three arrows into 50-year-old Doug Stacey on Sept. 7 at Stacey's home in the village of Elmwood Place.
Stacey had several surgeries after being shot twice in the back and once in the hand. Prosecutors say Stacey let Spivey stay with him after Spivey lost his home.
Stacey says he doesn't know what prompted the bow-and-arrow attack.
Spivey says Stacey attacked him first. A message left at Spivey's attorney's office hasn't been returned.
