Salisbury Woman Convicted of Attempted Murder

SALISBURY, Md.- A Salisbury woman arrested for slashing another woman's throat was convicted of attempted second-degree murder and related charges Thursday by a Wicomico County Circuit Court jury.

According to the Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office, the charges against 37-year-old Angela A. Bryant stemmed from a fight that occurred on New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, 2011. Evidence provided at trial showed that Bryant slashed another woman's throat down to the trachea.

Prosecutors said the victim was "lucky" to survive the attempt on her life after emergency surgery to close her throat at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

Bryant is expected to be sentenced within 30 days pending a pre-sentence investigation.

"This was a brutal crime and this defendant seems to be unable to control her conduct," said Wicomico County State's Attorney Matthew Maciarello. "Therefore we're going to be asking for a sentence that will protect the citizens of Wicomico County from this dangerous person."

Maciarello noted that Bryant has an extensive criminal history, which is one of the reasons why a pre-sentence investigation is being conducted.

Maciarello commended the Salisbury Police Department for its investigation of the case and also thanked Safe Streets prosecutor Richard J. Brueckner Jr. for his prosecution of the case.
