FLEMINGTON, NJ – A man who authorities initially sought as a suspect for attempted murder has pleaded guilty to second-degree aggravated assault and sentenced to state prison.

Ciro V. Perrone, 33, of Raritan Township, was wanted in connection with a New Year’s Day stabbing in a township home. The victim was taken to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital and admitted in critical condition. Perrone was arrested Jan. 5 after a $1,000 reward was offered for information leading to his apprehension.

Perrone pleaded guilty on May 25.
