Man admits to attacking woman in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Federal prosecutors say a man has pleaded guilty to an attack on a woman in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The U.S. attorney's office in Knoxville announced on Monday that 48-year-old William E. Seevers pleaded guilty to attempted murder and aggravated sexual abuse by force. The 44-year-old woman was attacked and stabbed on the Gatlinburg Trail in June 2012.

Prosecutors said Seevers held the woman at knifepoint, sexually assaulted her and stabbed and punched her as she tried to get away from him.

Seevers is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 21.
