A man accused of stabbing his sister with a metal pipe and a screwdriver in 2010 pleaded guilty yesterday and was slapped with a five-year jail term.
John Frank T. Kileleman, 31, and counsel, assistant public defender Matthew Meyer, signed a plea agreement with the government. He pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon.
Superior Court Associate Judge David A. Wiseman accepted Kileleman's guilty plea and the plea agreement.
As part of the plea deal, assistant attorney general Nicole D. Driscoll dismissed the remaining charges of attempted first degree murder, and three counts of disturbing the peace.
Wiseman sentenced the defendant to 10 years in prison, all suspended except for five years, with credit for the time he already served in jail.
After completing the jail sentence, Kileleman will be placed on supervised probation for five years.
Wiseman required Kileleman to seek psychiatric treatment for his mental health condition.
The defendant was ordered to pay $500 in probation fees and $25 in court costs.
During the entire period of his probation, Kileleman is prohibited from having direct or indirect contact with the victim, Elaine Teregeyo, her children or her grandchildren.
According to the plea agreement, on Oct. 14, 2010 on Saipan, Kileleman threw a two-foot metal pipe at his sister Teregeyo's head, then attacked her with a screw driver, stabbing her repeatedly. The victim suffered multiple lacerations and stab wounds in the head, arms, chest, and back.
