MARQUETTE — The man who allegedly stabbed another man minutes after the New Year’s Eve ball drop in Marquette has entered a plea in Marquette County Circuit Court.

26-year-old Casey Kallio pleaded no contest to assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. Kallio was initially arrested after allegedly stabbing a man in an alley on the 400 block of West Washington Street on New Year’s Day after that man confronted him about slashing a tire.

Kallio will be sentenced on June 5th.
