A Georgetown man is charged with attempted murder after he allegedly choked a woman as she was visiting a cemetery.

Brice Gross, 19, also is charged with kidnapping, according to court documents.

The woman was visiting Georgetown Cemetery on Saturday, and Gross attacked her and began to strangle her, but she was able to free herself and injure the man, according to Georgetown police.

In the arrest report, Gross said he was going to strangle the woman until she was unconscious, then put her body in her vehicle. He was then going to put a rock on the car’s gas pedal and send it into a body of water, police said.

Speaking to WKYT from jail, Gross blamed the attack on one of his multiple personalities. He said he blacked out when the personality took over.
