Poplar man admits stabbing

GREAT FALLS – Poplar resident Michael Cody Wolf today admitted he stabbed a woman in the back, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.

Wolf, 24, pleaded guilty to assault resulting in serious bodily injury. Wolf faces a maximum 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release. He is detained.

U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided and set sentencing for June 27.

The prosecutor said evidence would show that the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call on March 20, 2018 that a woman had been stabbed at a Poplar apartment, on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. Wolf was taken into custody at the scene and advised of his rights. Wolf told an officer that he “kinda snapped.”

The victim told law enforcement that Wolf had been out of his mental health medication for four days when the stabbing occurred. The victim felt something hit her in the back and realized she had been stabbed. The victim was flown to Billings Clinic and treated for life-threatening injuries.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Paulette Stewart prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office, the Fort Peck Tribal Police and FBI.
