 MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) -- A 45-year-old Idaho man charged with stabbing his
estranged wife after she rejected his interest in repairing the marriage has pleaded
not guilty to attempted deliberate homicide.
   The Missoulian reports  45-year-old Emmitt Hogsten Jr. entered his plea Tuesday
 before District Judge Karen Townsend. He remains jailed on $500,000 bail.
   Prosecutors say Hogsten traveled to Missoula with hopes of reconnecting with
his estranged wife. The two were riding around in her truck on Nov. 12 when she
told him she wanted a divorce. Court records say Hogsten choked her then stabbed
 her six or seven times in the chest. Witnesses say the stabbing ended when the
knife broke and the woman was able to escape to a nearby business.
