By using an Alford plea a defendant claims to be innocent or does not admit to all the elements of a charge, but admits prosecutors likely have enough evidence to find them guilty.

Casas-Inga was arrested in October after police said he stabbed a man nine times with a large kitchen knife during a birthday party in Cassia County.

Casas-Inga told officers that he had been in a fight with the man and he had grabbed the knife during the fight, police said.
