Christopher Wirfs has pleaded guilty to aggravated battery, first-degree stalking and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a crime. He scheduled to be sentenced at 3 p.m. May 18 at the Ada County Courthouse in Boise.
A jury trial scheduled to start Monday was canceled following Wirfs’ plea March 15, according to online court records.
Wirfs, 36, was accused of making repeated telephone calls to Makaela Zabel-Gravatt, 32, leaving threatening voice messages, sending her text messages and showing up at her place of employment and home.
In one phone message, Wirfs allegedly threatened to kill Zabel-Gravatt, deputy Ada County Prosecutor Dan Dinger alleged at a court hearing. The incidents took place between July 7 and Sept. 12, the date Wirfs allegedly went to her home.

Wirfs allegedly showed up Sept. 12 at Ambitions Salon, where Zabel-Gravatt works, according to court documents. He was asked to leave and escorted out by another person. She was shot at her home later that day.
Family members of Zabel-Gravatt said she sought a court order against Wirfs.
He faces one to five years in prison on the stalking charge and a fine of up to $10,000; up to 15 years on the aggravated battery charge, and an additional 15 years for the weapon enhancement.
