PENTICTON — A Princeton man accused of stabbing his wife and daughter outside a Princeton Dairy Queen in February was under court order to stay away from his wife after threatening to kill her.

James Buhler, born in 1961, is charged with the attempted murder of his wife and aggravated assault of his wife and their daughter. Police allege he stabbed them—then tried to kill himself—in the parking lot outside a Princeton Dairy Queen Feb. 26.

In January, 2014, he was charged for threatening to cause death or bodily harm to his wife between Sept. 1, 2013 and Dec. 7, 2013. He was released on a promise that he would have no contact with her. He now faces another charge for allegedly breaching that promise.

All three were taken to hospital after the incident.

Buhler is currently in custody at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre. A Penticton Provincial Court judge is awaiting results of a psychiatric assessment. Buhler’s next court date is scheduled for April 30 at 11 a.m. in provincial court.
