St. Charles man pleads guilty in stabbing

ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – A St. Charles man accused of injuring his neighbor with a knife last year has pleaded guilty to aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Judge Karen M. Simpson accepted Edward E. Brubaker’s plea on Jan. 8, according to Kane County court records.

Records show the 52-year-old was sentenced to 24 months of probation and that an aggravated assault charge against him was dropped.

Brubaker was charged with the felony following a stabbing incident that happened in June at an apartment in the 100 block of North 15th Street in St. Charles.

The fight was with his then-23-year-old neighbor, who was found in the apartment building with two long slash marks on his right side under his arm and a cut on his head, police have said.

The injured man was reportedly treated by emergency personnel at the scene.
