(STL.News) A Tulsa man was convicted today in federal court for cutting his girlfriend’s throat and for illegally possessing a firearm, announced U.S. Attorney Trent Shores.

Devin Charles Staller, 23, pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon in Indian Country and to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

“Devin Staller is a dangerous man, plain and simple.  He kicked in his girlfriend’s front door and later during a domestic dispute cut her throat.  Thankfully, she survived.  When police later arrested Staller, he was in illegal possession of a shotgun, ” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores.  “I am grateful this victim called police and they acted quickly.  Thanks to Iowa-based Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin Fletcher and the joint investigative work of the Tulsa Police Department, ATF and FBI, this dangerous eight-time felon has been convicted.”

In his written plea agreement, Staller admitted that he had intent to do bodily harm when he assaulted the female victim with a knife by cutting her throat on June 24, 2020.

He further admitted to being a felon in possession of a Montgomery Ward Savage 16 gauge pump-action shotgun.
