A 58-year-old Columbus, Nebraska man has pleaded no contest to charges he stabbed his wife and initiated a two-hour standoff with police.

Alfredo Santistevan pleaded to second-degree assault and terroristic threats charges.

Court documents say Santistevan's wife had a knife wound on her hand and swelling of her eye and nose.

Santistevan was arrested after the standoff and taken to a local hospital to be treated for self-inflicted knife wounds. Since his hospital release he has been held at the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services Diagnostic and Evaluation Center in Lincoln.

He faces up to 25 years in prison.
