LINCOLN, N.D. (AP) - Bond has been set at $75,000 cash for a Lincoln man accused of trying to kill a woman by hitting her in the head with a rock and choking her.

Forty-four-year-old Arthur Crissler faces an attempted murder charge and two other felonies that together carry a maximum punishment of 30 years in prison.

Court documents don’t list an attorney for Crissler, and a home telephone listing for him could not be found.

Court documents say the 41-year-old woman was able to get away on Friday night and flag down a passing motorist when Crissler went inside a residence to allegedly get a gun.

Crissler is on federal probation for a 2007 drug-related conviction.
