ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty to a federal assault charge for hitting another Jemez Pueblo resident with a hatchet.

Prosecutors say 20-year-old Jerome Dominic Concha entered into a plea agreement Monday.

Concha was indicted in February on a charge of assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

Authorities say Concha repeatedly struck another man in the face and head with a hatchet in a Jemez Pueblo home on Jan. 1.

They say the victim sustained serious injuries including a depressed skull fracture, a fracture to the jaw and upper palate and the loss of several teeth.

Concha has been in federal custody since his arrest and remains detained pending his sentencing hearing, which has yet to be scheduled.

Prosecutors say Concha faces up to a 10-year prison sentence.
