Michael Zamora, the thirty-six year old Lansing man taken into custody Saturday night, March 30th, was arraigned this afternoon in Lansing's 54a District Court.
Zamora faces assault with intent to do great bodily harm-less then the crime of murder. The offense is a felony, and punishable by up to ten years behind bars or up to $5,000 in fines.
Lansing Police say the assault occured around 9:45 pm, on the 300 block of Howe Street in Lansing.
Police say the victim, fifty-six year old Roberto Maldonado remains in stable condition, but is recovering from severe cuts to the chest and face, which will require surgery.
"Alcohol was a factor, it was a verbal argument that turned physical," said Lansing Police Sargeant Todd Johnson.
"During our investigation we obtained the accused's phone number and made contact with him. He ended up turning himself in and talking with us," said Johnson.
Zamora will appear in court again on April 8th, for a preliminary exam conference.
