The man and woman accused of stabbing a 22-year-old Ann Arbor man in an apartment hallway last year both struck plea deals recently, court records indicate.
Dorian Johnson, 22, of Detroit, and Courtney McCoy, 21, of Ann Arbor, were scheduled for a jury trial to start on April 8, but had their cases resolved a few days earlier on April 4, according to court records.
McCoy pleaded no contest to a possessing a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent and added charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and conspiracy with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, according to the records. Johnson pleaded guilty to the same charges.
The two will have the following charges dismissed: assault with intent to murder, conspiracy to commit assault with intent to murder, conspiracy to commit a crime with a dangerous weapon, assault with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit assault with a dangerous weapon.
Johnson and McCoy are accused of knocking on the victim's door after 3 a.m. Sept. 9 in an apartment complex in the 400 block of South First Street. McCoy, who lived in the complex, was apparently upset about a disagreement that occurred a month earlier, police said.
The couple was accused of stabbing the man in the abdomen after he came into the hallway. The man, who police described as severely wounded, staggered to the BP gas station, where police and medical personnel responded. The man was treated at the University of Michigan Hospital and later released.
They are scheduled to be sentenced May 9. McCoy is free on bond. Johnson is being held at the Washtenaw County Jail on a $20,000 cash or surety bond.
