An attempted murder charge against a Craig woman was dismissed Thursday in Moffat County District Court as part of a plea agreement with the 14th Judicial District Attorney's Office.

Anne Marie Goslin, who appeared before Judge Sandra Gardner, pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary, a Class 4 felony, and menacing, a Class 5 felony.

In addition to the murder charge, prosecutors also dismissed the second-degree assault charge and a menacing charge, and they amended the burglary charge from first degree to second degree.

Goslin is represented by public defender Sheryl Uhlmann.

The charges against Goslin, who is free on bond, stem from an alleged incident Oct. 20, 2008, at a home in the 600 block of Barclay Street.

Police were called to the home on a report of an assault in progress, and there were two female victims, neither of whom required medical attention, officers reported.

Prosecutors alleged Goslin took a "substantial step toward the commission of murder in the first degree" during the incident.

Goslin will be sentenced March 26 in District Court.

She will have an open sentencing, meaning she can be sentenced to the Department of Corrections, jail, probation or community corrections. The final decision rests with the judge.

Under terms of the agreement, her sentence would have a cap of six years.

Goslin has no previous felony convictions.

Jeremy Snow, deputy district attorney for the 14th, said he will make a sentencing recommendation to the court in March. He said he could not comment on the recommendation until the hearing.

Judge Gardner ordered Thursday a pre-sentencing report be prepared on Goslin, who is being supervised by her family while on bond.

"A substantial step was taken" to commit murder and the charge was dismissed! Looks as though we have more of the same that we had under Rostinks administration. And we were hoping for a change in the DA's office. I guess this is just another ( Jeremy) Snow job. Wonder what the intended victim thinks of this.
