Man arraigned in Albany County on attempted murder charge

A man in Albany County has been arraigned on charges, including attempted murder.

Bledar Hoxha pleaded not guilty Wednesday to an eight-count indictment.
He’s charged with attempted murder, assault, burglary and endangering the welfare of a child.

As NewsChannel 13 reported earlier this month, police say Hoxha broke into the home of his former partner, threatened her with a BB gun, and stabbed her with a kitchen knife.

Police say the former couple’s children witnessed the incident, but were not harmed.
