WEST VALLEY CITY -- A plea deal has been reached in the case of a man accused of breaking into his ex-wife's home using a sledgehammer, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Robert Wayne Hunter pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, burglary and stalking.

Prosecutors originally charged him with attempted murder for breaking into the woman's West Valley City home last September, threatening to kill her, her boyfriend and himself.

The boyfriend then shot Hunter in the leg with a shotgun and called police.

Hunter faces up to 30 years in prison when he is sentenced in November.
