CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A man accused of threatening police with a knife before he was shot along Interstate 75 pleaded guilty to felonious assault Wednesday.

Pablo Javier Aleman, 46, was wanted for a murder investigation in Baltimore before his March 29 confrontation with Glendale officer Josh Hilling.

Aleman was charged with attempted murder and felonious assault in the incident.  He agreed to a sentence of 11 years for felonious assault and the two counts of attempted murder were dropped.  He also faces deportation and will eventually be extradited to Baltimore to face the murder charge. 

Prosecutors say Aleman lunged at Hilling with a knife before Hilling shot him along the highway near Sharon Road.

Hilling, 31, fired one gunshot at Aleman. The suspect was shot in the abdomen and continued to walk around the roadway with the knife in his hand. 

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters praised Hilling for using “remarkable restraint” as Aleman advanced toward officers while yelling "Kill me, kill me."

It's not clear why Aleman was walking on the side of the interstate, but he initially told the officer he had just left Dayton and was looking for a taxi.

Prosecutor Deters said he believes the knife pulled on I-75 is the same used in the Baltimore stabbing.
