ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Prosecutors thought they had a deal with a young man accused of breaking into an elderly woman's home and trying to smother her.
But Fillip Kosorukov, 21 changed his mind at the last minute and rejected a plea deal. He now will go on trial Monday.
The attack happened in October when the victim says she heard a pounding on her door. When she went to answer it, she says a man forced his way in, threw her on the couch and used a pillow to try to smother her.
That man was later identified as Kosorukov.
Kosorukov was scheduled to plead guilty Wednesday.
The charges against him include kidnapping, attempted murder and assault.

This is something I would have wanted to do as a kid during my winter break: Destination Moon Camp! Here to tell us all about this is Michelle Watkins with the Challenger Learning Center New Mexico.
Dinner rolls are a wonderful compliment to those holiday dishes, and shaping dough is quite easy.
