VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A Vigo County man entered a plea just as his trial started.

Derek Snapp was arrested for several charges including criminal confinement.

Court documents say Snapp pressed a knife against his wife's throat while making threats. He's also a habitual offender.

A jury was seated on Tuesday and his trial was set to continue Wednesday.

However Snapp decided to enter a guilty plea instead.

With that motion the trial has ended and a sentencing date has been set for November.
