WILKES-BARRE – A Duryea man charged with handcuffing his ex-girlfriend, beating her with a shovel and threatening to kill her pleaded guilty Tuesday to several related charges.


Mark Christian Graziosi, 48, of Raspberry Road, was scheduled to stand trial this week on eight related charges, but instead entered a guilty plea to seven of them.


County Judge Joseph Sklarosky Jr. accepted Graziosi’s guilty plea to charges of aggravated assault, unlawful restraint, simple assault, reckless endangerment of another person, false imprisonment and two counts of terroristic threats.


Assistant District Attorney Nancy Violi and Graziosi’s attorney, Mark Bufalino, on Tuesday agreed to a prison sentence Sklarosky would impose on Graziosi – one year, less one day to two years, less two days — to be served at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility.


Sklarosky set a sentencing hearing for June 4 and ordered Graziosi to have no contact with the Pittston woman.
