WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A Williston man who police say seriously injured a woman by pushing her down a flight of stairs during an argument has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault.

Thirty-seven-year-old Joby Zimmerman was arrested last July after the incident that authorities say caused brain injuries to the woman, who spent several days on life support.

The Williston Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1VIj0P7 ) that Zimmerman avoided a trial this week by reaching a plea deal with prosecutors. A sentencing date was not immediately scheduled. He faces up to 10 years in prison.
