Man gets 15-30 years for attempted homicide of ex-girlfriend

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A former Hershey man has been ordered to serve 15 to 30 years in a state prison for trying to kill his ex-girlfriend last year.

Kerry L. Boltz, 33, was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to attempted homicide, aggravated assault, kidnapping, unlawful restraint, terroristic threats, stalking, and theft, according to the Dauphin County district attorney’s office.

Prosecutors said Boltz in October 2014 hid in his ex-girlfriend’s car while she was at work in Palmyra. When she got in the car, he held a knife to her and demanded she drive him to their former home.

Boltz stabbed the woman twice in the neck as she escaped the car in Hershey.
