TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A Maryland man who prosecutors say stabbed his ex-girlfriend at a Subway restaurant in New Jersey has been charged with attempted murder.

The Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said Monday that 48-year-old Yoon Choi, of Silver Spring, Maryland, was indicted by a grand jury on March 27.

His attorney, Matthew Jeon, says Choi plans to plead not guilty and that he will request a psychological evaluation. He says Choi suffered a “temporary relaxation of his mental facilities” during the incident.

Prosecutors say Choi was charged with first-degree attempted murder and weapons offenses for the stabbing in Hamilton last December.

The victim, a 44-year-old from Connecticut, suffered extensive blood loss, nerve damage and had to undergo multiple surgeries to repair her esophagus.

Choi is being held at the Mercer County Correction Center on $750,000 bail.
