A Lincoln man who stabbed a woman who’d spurned his offer of marriage has been given 30 to 35 years in prison.
Twenty-four-year Kaw Say, a refugee from Myanmar, had pleaded no contest to a charge of attempted murder. The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Say was sentenced on Wednesday in Lancaster County District Court.
Prosecutors have said Say stabbed 21-year-old Thai Paw last April with a kitchen knife until he broke the handle and then got another one. Paw survived eight puncture and cutting wounds.
Say told police he had asked Paw to marry him, but she’d said no and had started dating someone else.
