Aaron Crawford of La Vista was charged in Sarpy County Court with attempted murder, first-degree assault and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony. 

Authorities said Crawford stabbed Jessica Jones, his 38-year-old girlfriend, in the neck Wednesday night at the couple's residence at Vivere Apartments at 8216 City Centre Drive.

La Vista police officers found a "blood-soaked scene" and Jones in the hallway. Officers fired pepper balls at Crawford, who police said was in the bathroom and refused to drop a knife.

La Vista Police Chief Bob Lausten said the couple had moved to the area from Kentucky a few months ago.
