Falls teen pleads guilty in Bergholz stabbing

LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls teenager pleaded guilty Thursday for his role in a March 16 double stabbing in Bergholz.

Kim Bradley, 17, of 32nd Street, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault, which carries a maximum penalty of seven years in prison. Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon made no commitments on sentencing, which she scheduled for July 6. In the meantime, Bradley is being held in lieu of $20,000 bail.

Charges remain pending against a co-defendant, Eduardo R. Martinez, 19, of Michigan Avenue in the Falls.

He and Bradley were charged with stabbing a man and his stepson in their apartment on Stoelting Street on Bergholz, a hamlet in the Town of Wheatfield, in an argument that apparently began over posts on Facebook.
