The man accused of attempting to kill his girlfriend by strangulation and trying to smother her with a body pillow, pled not guilty to all charges on Oct. 14
Gregory Frechette, 34, of Darlington has been charged with first-degree attempted intentional homicide and one count of strangulation and suffocation. The charges stem from an event on Aug. 16 after Frechette and his girlfriend got into an argument while camping in Woodford Park.
Frechette and his attorney Frank Medina waived the right to a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, Oct. 14 before entering the plea.
Medina also filed a request for substitution of judge, and on Oct. 20, Judge Thomas Vale was assigned to the case, taking over from Judge William Johnston.
Frechette will next appear in court on Wednesday, Dec. 10 for a status conference.
