TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A Maryland man accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend at a Subway restaurant in New Jersey has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and weapons offenses.

The Trentonian reports (https://bit.ly/1ONKMGy ) 48-year-old Yoon Choi was offered a 20-year sentence for the crime. An initial plea offer was extended at Choi’s arraignment.

The Silver Spring, Maryland, man was indicted in March in the stabbing in Hamilton last December.

The victim, a 44-year-old from Connecticut, owed him $40,000 and they met in New Jersey so she could repay Choi. Prosecutors say he lashed out in a fit of rage when she told him she married a longtime boyfriend.

His attorney, Matthew Jeon, has said Choi suffered a “temporary relaxation of his mental facilities” during the incident.

He remains jailed in lieu of $750,000 bail.
