A Bellevue woman was sentenced Wednesday to two years in prison after an attack on her roommate.
A Sarpy County District Court judge sentenced Angela N. Cuckler, 28, after she pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree assault and conspiracy to commit attempted second-degree assault. She was given credit for a little over a year she already has served.
She also was ordered to complete three years of probation after being released and must perform 60 hours of community service.
Michael R. Glaze, 45, of Bellevue is accused of conspiring with Cuckler to kill their roommate, Erik Rasmussen, 30. Glaze is awaiting trial next month on charges of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, use of weapon to commit a felony, being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Cuckler, Glaze and Rasmussen lived in an apartment in Bellevue, a police spokesman said. Glaze allegedly stabbed Rasmussen on July 27, 2019, while Cuckler was present in the apartment.
Rasmussen was able to escape the attack and walked into the Bellevue Medical Center suffering from stab wounds. He was treated for several wounds, including an injury to his head.
