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.
