A 44-year-old man pled guilty to murder Tuesday after he stabbed his girlfriend multiple times with a knife during an argument in May 2017 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

Michael Carroll Wilson pled guilty to first-degree murder, and the state of Maryland is seeking life without the possibility of parole, according to the Office of the State's Attorney for Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

Wilson got into an argument with his girlfriend Charlotta Barkley in his apartment. Barkley and her daughter left the apartment when Wilson followed them to their car.

Barkley called police and officials state Wilson started attacking her with a knife when he heard sirens.

Barkley's daughter tried to stop the attack, but Wilson stabbed her in the hand before he continued stabbing Barkley in the back and upper body.

According to officials, Barkley and her daughter were able to get into their car and drove to an area hospital.

Officials say Wilson later became unresponsive and died on May 8.
