Ed Halverson pleaded guilty in court this morning to beating her.
Halverson entered an Alford plea that means he does not admit guilt, but understands there is sufficient evidence to convict him.
The plea is to one count of battery with a deadly weapon with substantial bodily harm.
Prosecutors agreed to drop the charge of attempted muder.
Halverson told the judge, David Barker, he has no recollection of the incident.
Sentencing is scheduled for December 12 and Halverson will likely be sentenced from three to ten years in prison.
