CHEROKEE, Iowa (KTIV) -- A northwest Iowa man has pleaded guilty to several charges connected to an attack, with a hammer, in November.
34-year-old Joseph Kosiba pleaded guilty to charges of "going armed with intent", "first-degree burglary", and "domestic abuse-assault."
Kosiba will serve at least five years in prison, but could serve up to 25-years for the incident inside 210 East Maple Street. Police say he went after his former girlfriend Maranna Wiley with a hammer. Kosiba allegedly chased her through the home before she locked herself, and her child, inside a bathroom. Police say Kosiba then hit a man with the hammer after he was confronted inside the home.
