Man Gets 30-40 Years in Grand Island Stabbing

stabbing(AP) — A 41-year-old man has been given 30 to 40 years in prison for stabbing his estranged girlfriend outside a Grand Island church.

Aslin Nabarro had pleaded no contest to attempted first-degree murder.  Nabarro was sentenced on Thursday. He said in court that he regretted what he did.

Nabarro was arrested after a May 17 assault in a parking lot of St. Mary’s Cathedral.

After an argument with a woman identified as Mirna Medina-Colocho, Nabarro stabbed her 20 times in the upper torso and head.

He then cut his own throat and fled but collapsed less than a block away.
