Zap man faces attempted murder charge after stabbing that sent man to hospital for surgery


BISMARCK, North Dakota — A Zap man is facing charges including attempted murder after a stabbing that put another man in the hospital.

Tyson Gappert is accused of stabbing the other man during a fight last Thursday at the home of the man's girlfriend. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the man who was stabbed required surgery at a Bismarck hospital for a punctured liver, and was put in a drug-induced coma.

Gappert is due in court April 8 on attempted murder, aggravated assault and drug charges. He could face 46 years in prison if convicted on all counts. His attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.
